Kurt Coleman earned a seat on the bench after allowing a short catch to become a long touchdown by missing a tackle twice on the same play. The second-year safety didn't whiff on his second chance to start. Coleman had three interceptions to help the Philadelphia Eagles to a 20-13 victory at Washington last Sunday. His performance earned him NFC defensive player of the week honors. Coleman became the 11th player in club history to have three interceptions in a game and the first since 1966. He also had six tackles, helping the Eagles shut down the run for the first time this season.
