Eagles punter is NFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Posted: November 22, 2013

EAGLES PUNTER Donnie Jones was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his game against the Redskins. He set a team record with a 50.7 net yard average on six punts.

Four of Jones' punts were downed inside the 20. His final punt came with 3 minutes, 37 seconds left and the Eagles ahead, 24-16. He booted a 70-yarder that rolled out of bounds at the Redskins' 4-yard line.

It was the longest punt by an Eagle since Randall Cunningham had an 80-yarder at Dallas in October 1994.

It was the 10-year veteran's first weekly honor.
