    CB Trevon Diggs Named NFC Defensive Player of the Month for September

    On the heels of a superstar performance in Dallas' victory over the , Cornerback Trevon Diggs has been named the Defensive Player of the Month for September. The second-year stud had an interception in each of the Cowboys' first three games.

    Diggs is tied with Bengals LB Logan Wilson for the league lead in interceptions after Week 3. His pick-six in Monday night's win was a soul-crushing play for the Eagles, ending any realistic thoughts of a second-half comeback.

    Trevon is the first Cowboys defender to win the monthly award since in September of 2017.
