CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Bengals Kicker Mike Nugent was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week following his game-winning field goal in the Bengals 27-24 overtime win over Seattle on Sunday.

Nugent made both of his field goal attempts in the win including a 31-yarder to tie force overtime and a 42-yarder to win the game.

“I think it’s great,” said Nugent. “As long as we’re scoring points, winning by three or by 12, I just like the way the offense is doing a great job moving the ball down the field and the defense is doing a great job as well.”

It’s the second weekly award of Nugent’s career. He last won Special Teams Player of the Week in 2010.
