Eddie Royal has returned only one punt all year, but he made that one return count. Royal weaved his way through Oakland players for an 85-yard touchdown return Sunday. His touchdown gave the Broncos a 31-24 lead late in the fourth quarter. For that return, the NFL selected Royal as the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week. He is the first Broncos player to win a weekly honor this season. Running back Willis McGahee is also up for an honor as one of the nominees for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week award. Fans can vote for that award at nfl.com.
