Vikings DE Everson Griffen named NFC Defensive Player of the Week

By Derek Wetmore

Everson Griffen was the embodiment of a dominating defensive performance, with three sacks in the Vikings’ win against the Panthers in Week 3. On Wednesday he was rewarded by being named NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Griffen was a force and kept showing up in Carolina’s backfield, and he cleaned up a sack after Danielle Hunter had beaten his man, but missed bringing down QB Cam Newton.

This is the 10th time a Vikings players has earned NFC player of the week under head coach Mike Zimmer, and Griffen’s second time winning the award since Zimmer took over.
