LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The National Football League announced today that Washington Redskins safety Landon Collins has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the team’s Week 6 win against the Miami Dolphins.


The honor is the fourth of Collins’ career and his first as a member of the Redskins. It is his first selection since Week 11 of the 2017 season. He is the 37th Redskin to receive the NFC Defensive Player of the Week honor since the award’s inception in 1984. Collins becomes the first Redskin to be selected since linebacker Keenan Robinson in Week 7 of the 2014 season, and he is the first Redskins safety to receive the honor since LaRon Landry did so in Week 5 of the 2010 season. 


Collins finished the Week 6 contest against the Miami Dolphins with 12 tackles (10 solo), including one for a loss, one sack, one forced fumble and two passes defensed. Collins finished tied for second in the NFC in total tackles and was tied for first in the NFC in solo tackles. He was one-of-two players to record a forced fumble and multiple passes defensed in Week 6 and was the only player in the NFC to register a sack, a pass defensed and a forced fumble. It was Collins’ first sack since the 2016 season, and it was his sixth-career game with multiple passes defensed. Collins was one-of-12 players in the NFC this week to register multiple passes defensed, and the forced fumble was the fourth of Collins’ career.


Through six games this season, Collins has registered 55 tackles (39 solo), including four for loss, one sack, one forced fumble, two passes defensed and one quarterback hit. He has started in all six games this season and has led the team in tackles twice this season. 


Collins is the first Redskin this season to receive NFC Player of the Week honors. He entered 2019 having earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors three times in his career. He earned the award in Week 7 and Week 9 of the 2016 season and in Week 11 of the 2017 season as a member of the New York Giants.

It's definitely a good sign that he isn't mailing it in after getting paid.
