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.
