Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, who returned a punt 60 yards for a touchdown last Sunday, has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Brown's touchdown helped the Steelers pull away from the Bengals in a 35-7 win. It was the Steelers' first punt return for a touchdown during a regular-season game since 2006. Former Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes returned a punt 67 yards for a touchdown in a 35-24 win over the Chargers in a 2008 AFC Divisional playoff game.

Brown is averaging 12.2 yards per punt return, which ranks second in the AFC.
