Saints' Graham highlights NFC weekly winners

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and Dallas Cowboys punt returner Dwayne Harris were recognized as the NFC's top Week 10 performers.

Graham had a career-high 146 yards and two touchdowns on seven receptions in the Saints' 31-27 victory over the previously unbeaten Atlanta Falcons to earn the offensive honor. He is the first tight end in franchise history to receive the award.

Sherman took home the defensive award with an interception, a sack, a forced fumble, three tackles and three passes defended in a 28-7 win over the New York Jets. He was part of a defense that did not allow a touchdown and held the Jets to just 185 total yards.

Harris returned a punt a career-long 78 yards for the decisive score in the Cowboys' 38-23 decision over the Philadelphia Eagles to receive the special teams award.
