When it was said and done, Bengals return specialist Brandon Tate posted a team-high 186 all-purpose yards against the Seahawks on Sunday, averaging 24.3 yards per punt return, including a 56-yard punt return for a touchdown that gave Cincinnati a two-touchdown lead late in the fourth quarter. Additionally Tate posted a season-high 28.3 yards on kickoff returns against the Seattle Seahawks, including a 45-yard return. He had a great game.

And the NFL is honoring Tate's performance, naming him the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week. Tate is the first to win the award since Bernard Scott won it in week 10 of the 2009 regular season, when Scott returned a kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Other nominations for AFC Special Teams Player of the Week included Baltimore Ravens place kicker Billy Cundiff (three field goals, including game winning 25-yarder) and Kansas City Chiefs place kicker Ryan Succop (three field goals, including a game-winning 30-yarder in overtime).
