Henry Defensive Player of the Week
Anthony Henry

Posted Oct 19, 2005

Cowboys cornerback garners NFL Player of the Week honors for his play Sunday against the Giants.

Anthony Henry was a top performer on a Dallas defense that rose to the occasion in an NFC East contest against the New York Giants, helping the Cowboys to an exciting 16-13 overtime victory at Texas Stadium. Henry led the team with seven tackles and four passes defensed, adding one interception and forcing a fumble, as the Cowboys held the Giants to their lowest scoring output of the season.

Henry's third quarter interception was the first off New York quarterback Eli Manning since Sept. 11 and ended a Giants scoring threat at the Dallas 1-yard line. Henry forced a fumble later in the third quarter that was recovered by the Cowboys and led to a field goal attempt. The Dallas defense limited New York to 179 passing yards on the day.
