Browns WR Travis Benjamin Named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week


Thanks to his team record-setting punt return for a touchdown on Sunday, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Travis Benjamin was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week on Wednesday.

It’s certainly a well-deserved honor. On Sunday, with the Browns trailing 7-3, Travis Benjamin (in a late formation shift) handled the Chiefs’ punt and returned it 93 yards for the score. It arguably changed the momentum of the entire game, and the Browns never relinquished the lead after that.

Benjamin is the first Browns rookie to win the award since Andre Davis in 2002.
