New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis received the NFL Way to Play award for his performance in Week 16, the NFL announced the award Thursday, Dec. 26. The award recognizes the best examples of playing technique each week of the NFL regular season and playoffs.
A distinguished panel of NFL Legends selects the player who positively impacted the game through proper technique (i.e., tackling, blocking, footwork, discipline, vision). The recipient is announced every Thursday during the season on NFL Network's "Good Morning Football."
Each winner receives a $2,500 equipment grant through USA Football for the youth or high school football program of the player's choice.
Davis is the second Saints player to take home the Way to Play award this season. Teammate Marshon Lattimore won the award in Week 10.
