Brown: NFC Special Teams Player of Week

The NFL and the Washington Redskins announced Dec. 13 that kick returner Antonio Brown has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Brown, signed two weeks ago after being released earlier in the season, had a career day against the Cardinals last week. Brown scored the game-winning touchdown on a 91-yard kickoff return. It marked Brown's longest return and his first career touchdown return during the regular season.

It was the second time the Redskins have taken a kickoff return for a touchdown this season. Ladell Betts scored earlier in the season on a 94-yard return against Tampa Bay.
