Ryan Kerrigan wins first NFC Defensive Player of the Week Award

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Football Team Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

It’s pretty hard to believe, but for the first time in his 9+ year career, Ryan Kerrigan took home NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his Week 1 performance against the Eagles. With 4 QB pressures, 2 QB hits, 2 sacks, and a fumble recovery — in only 22 total snaps — Kerrigan was a critical part of the WFT’s impressive victory. Kerrigan also managed to break Dexter Manley’s all-time team sack record, collecting career sacks #91 and #92. Congrats, Ryan!

Enjoy this footage of Kerrigan attaching himself to Carson Wentz like something out of a Ridley Scott movie.
