Bengals WR Brandon Tate today was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week by the NFL. Tate returned three punts for 73 yards (24.3-yard average) in the Bengals 34-12 win at Seattle on Sunday, including a 56-yarder for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter, putting the Bengals up by the pivotal two-score margin, 27-12. It was the teams first punt return for a TD since 2003 (11-16-03 vs. Kansas City, Peter Warrick, 68 yards). Tate, who totaled 186 return yards in the game, also returned four kickoffs for 113 yards (28.3), including a 45-yarder. Tate, a third-year pro acquired Sept. 4 on waivers from New England, is averaging 12.3 yards on 24 punt returns for the season, which ranks fifth in the NFL, and he has a 25.1-yard average on 18 kickoff returns. In the last three games, Tate has averaged 18.9 yards on eight punt returns. The last Bengal to win a Player of the Week award was K Mike Nugent, who won the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week award in Week 2 last season.
