Woodson wins NFC's Defensive Player of the Week

Charles Woodson was named the N-F-C's Defensive Player of the Week today.

The Packers cornerback had four tackles, an interception and two fumble recoveries in Green Bay's 17-14 win over Washington.

He also had the go-ahead 57-yard touchdown return with just over 13 minutes left in the fourth quarter.

In his 10th year from Michigan, it's the first time the former Heisman Trophy winner has received a Defensive Player of the Week award.

Woodson is the first Packers cornerback to be honored in more than two years, when Al Harris received the accolade.
