Keenan Robinson Named NFC Defensive Player of the Week

The NFL announced today that Redskins linebacker Keenan Robinson has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in a Week 7 win against the Tennessee Titans.

Against the Titans, Robinson posted a career-high and game-high 14 tackles. He became the first Redskins linebacker to record at least 14 total tackles in a game since Perry Riley, Jr. in Week 1 of the 2013 season. The middle linebacker helped hold the Titans to 236 total yards, the fewest by the Titans this season and Tennessee’s fewest since Week 6 of the 2013 season.

This marks the first NFC Defensive Player of the Week award of Robinson’s career. He is the first member of the Redskins to earn the honor since cornerback DeAngelo Hall in Week 12 of the 2011 season.
