Not only did Travis Benjamin get a punter fired, he picked up an award for last week’s performance.
The Browns punt returner was named AFC special teams player of the week, the second time in three weeks the team has had the award-winner.
Benjamin set a franchise record with 179 punt return yards against the Bills last Thursday, including a 79-yard touchdown and another 57-yarder which set up a field goal. The total yardage was sixth-most in league history, and the most in a game since 2004. He’s second in the league with a 15.1-yard average.
