Bengals punt and kickoff return specialist Brandon Tate generated 182 return yards during Cincinnati's 20-13 win over the St. Louis Rams last Sunday. His 56-yard punt return, along with a personal foul at the end of the play, put Cincinnati's offense on the Rams' 12-yard line in the third quarter. Three plays later the Cincinnati Bengals scored a touchdown to take a 13-6 lead with 17 seconds remaining in the third quarter. It was his second-biggest game of the year, following his exceptional 186 yards against the Seattle Seahawks that earned him AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Kansas City Chiefs place kicker Ryan Succop won the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for week 15, connecting on four field goals during Kansas City's shocking 19-14 win over the then-undefeated Green Bay Packers.

That being said Tate was nominated for the special teams player of the week following his performance against the St. Louis Rams.

Miami's place kicker Dan Carpenter was also nominated after converting three field goals.
