BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns return specialist Josh Cribbs has been selected as the AFC's special teams player of the week for his performance in a win at Indianapolis.
Cribbs sparked Cleveland on Sunday with a 52-yard kickoff return. He also returned a punt 43 yards in the Browns' 27-19 win over the Colts. Both returns set up touchdowns.
Cribbs is ranked fifth in the NFL with a 34.2-yard average on kick returns, and he's seventh in punt returns at 13.8.
This is the fourth time Cribbs, the league's career leader with eight kickoff returns for touchdown, has won the award.
