IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – What a year for Dallas Cowboy Bryan McCann.

Two games ago, the rookie cornerback returned an interception 101 yards against the New York Giants.  It shifted the momentum of the game and gave Jason Garrett his first win as Cowboys Interim Head Coach.

That play earned him NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors.

What would he do for an encore?  Against Detroit last Sunday, he had a 97 yard punt return for a touchdown.  It’s the second longest punt return in Dallas Cowboys club history.

And it earned him the award NFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

According to the Cowboys, McCann is the first rookie to accomplish the touchdown feat since Devin Hester in 2006.

Not bad for the rookie from SMU.  What will he do Thursday, against the New Orleans Saints, to accomplish a touchdown trifecta?  Maybe he could sneak on the field and help the Cowboys running game?
