New York Giants slot wide receiver and return man Dwayne Harris has been named the NFC's Week 7 Special Teams Player of the Week, for his performance against his former team, the Dallas Cowboys.

With the game locked in at 20-20 in the fourth quarter, Harris returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown with just seven minutes left. The touchdown turned out be the game-winning score for the Giants in their key divisional win.

The last Giants player to win this award was place kicker Josh Brown during the 2013 regular season. Harris had previously won this award in three separate games during his tenure with the Cowboys.
