Weekly awards are becoming common for the Eagles.

For the second time in three weeks, punter Donnie Jones was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week. (The Eagles had a bye in Week 12.)

Jones was as dominant as a punter can be during the Eagles' 24-21 win over the Cardinals at the Linc. He landed seven punts inside the 20-yard line, setting a team record and tying for the third-highest total in the NFL since the stat became official in 1976.

Jones also booted a 69-yard punt, two weeks after sending one 70 yards against the Redskins.

He's placed 29 punts inside the 20 this season, which is already tied for the second-most in Eagles history, behind Jeff Feagles' 31 in 1993.

Jones has the third-highest career gross punting average (45.3 yards) and the best net punting average in Eagles history (41.3).

The Eagles have earned numerous weekly NFC awards this season. Nick Foles has twice been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week, and was also the conference's Offensive Player of the Month in November. DeSean Jackson won the same award after the Eagles' 36-21 win over the Giants, in which he caught seven passes for 132 yards and a TD.
