Safety Brian Dawkins has reached the milestone stage of his career.



Safety Brian Dawkins has reached the milestone stage of his career.

In last week's win over the Arizona Cardinals, the Eagles' Pro Bowl safety tied cornerbacks Eric Allen and Bill Bradley for the franchise record for career interceptions with his 34th. Sunday against the New York Giants, he will tie the franchise record for games played.

This will be Dawkins' 180th game with the Eagles, tying him with receiver Harold Carmichael.

"Those things, they do mean a lot to me," Dawkins said. "It's hard to celebrate, because you're still in the midst of a tough season and the midst of your career, so it's really hard to celebrate. But, yeah, those things are huge to me. Many, many, many individuals have come through this organization ... so to know that I will be the one standing to have played the most games for this organization is a huge accomplishment."
