Josh Brown named NFC special teams player of week

Giants kicker Josh Brown was good from distance, and good at the right time.

Brown was named NFC special teams player of the week, after his perfect showing in Sunday’s win over the Lions.

Brown hit all three field goal attempts, including the game-winning 45-yarder in overtime.

Brown also hit a 41- and 52-yarder, along with a pair of extra points to lead all NFC kickers in scoring last week, as well as eliminate the Lions from playoff contention.

    The extra point kicks were both from 19 yards. Josh is money at that distance.

    Brown won Special Teams Player of the Month last December when he was with the Bengals. Good for him.

    Good article but it would have been more impressive if it also recognized that Brown did something that no other Giant kicker had ever done in making three FGs in one game from 40+.

    If he played for the Lions and he ran back a punt for a touchdown and a kickoff for a touchdown and had a great tackle on punt coverage he wouldn’t have won the same award.
    Whoever votes for these awards are a bunch of morons. After Jeremy Ross didn’t win for his amazing game against Philly these awards became a complete joke.
