Weakside linebacker Michael Boley won the NFC Defensive Player of the Week award today for his 13-tackle effort against his old team, the Falcons.
Boley had a sack, two tackles behind the line, and two hits on Matt Ryan. He also undoubtedly got plenty of votes from the commenters on this blog, who wasted no time in calling me out for underrating his performance Sunday.
Guess they were right. I still think he should have knocked down that game-tying touchdown pass to Gonzalez.
