After returning a kickoff 101 yards for a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 6 win over the Browns, Jacoby Ford has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

The 101-yard return on Sunday matched the longest of Ford's two-year NFL career and gives him the franchise record for most career return touchdowns with four.

The 24-year-old receiver out of Clemson also has nine receptions for 101 yards in four games this season.
