Brown named AFC Special Teams Player

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week following a 35-7 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. It's the first time Brown has won the award and the first time a Steeler has won the award since wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders last season.

Brown registered his first career punt return for a touchdown, a 60-yarder in the second quarter to give the Steelers a 28-7 lead.

It was the first punt return for a touchdown by a Steeler since the 2006 season. Brown is third in the AFC with 330 punt return yards this season, and he is second in the AFC with a 12.2 punt return average.

Brown ranks atop the AFC and second in the NFL with 1,665 all-purpose yards.
