About this time last month, we were unsure which place kicker the Cincinnati Bengals would take into the regular season. While Mike Nugent nailed 50-yarders, David Rayner simply had more chances.
Then Nugent went all nuts, converting all five field goal attempts against the Baltimore Ravens, becoming the Bengals sole offensive weapon.
And he's being honored for his awesome performance. Nugent was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week on Wednesday by the NFL. Nugent has kicked six field goals this year, one behind Pittsburgh's Jeff Reed for most in the NFL.
