Lance Briggs Inc. named NFC Defensive Player of the Week

When you have injuries mounting up at one position (Urlacher, Tinoisamoa, Hillenmayer) it's great to see one of your stars step up to the limelight and have a great game. That's what Briggs did on Sunday. He was all over the field and played like the stud Pro-Bowler that he is.

Bears linebacker Lance Briggs, who had a key interception and a sack in the 25-19 win over the Seahawks, was named the NFC's defensive player of the week.

Briggs, who also had eight tackles in the game, leads the Bears with 23 tackles and has taken ownership of the defense with Brian Urlacher out for the season following wrist surgery. Briggs was named a co-captain along with Adewale Ogunleye after Urlacher was placed on injured reserve.
