Packers Linebacker Clay Matthews III is NFC Defensive Player of the Week

Clay Matthews

For the second time in the 2010 NFL season, Green Bay Packers linebacker, Clay Matthews has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week.   He also won this title after week 2, and Defensive Player of the Month for September.

All very impressive, considering he’s played 8 of 9 games, and won twice.

Clay leads the NFL with 11 sacks,  he has already racked up 31 tackles and one INT for a touchdown.  If Clay keeps up this momentum, he’ll be a shoe in for NFL Defensive Player of Year or perhaps the highest honor NFL Most Valuable Player.
