Many think Jarvis Landry will become a special receiver. For now, he’s simply the AFC’s special-teams player of the week.
Landry’s 69-yard punt return for a touchdown broke a 10-10 tie and paved the way for a 17-10 Miami win at Washington. The guy who wears No. 14 becomes the 14th Dolphin to win the award, and the first since defensive end Olivier Vernon in Week Eight of the 2012 season.
Landry also is the first Dolphin to return a punt for a touchdown since Marcus Thigpen in Week One of the 2012 season.
The second-year wideout also had eight catches for 53 yards.
