ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, the NFL informed the Broncos on Wednesday.
Prater set an NFL record with his 64-yard field goal as time expired in the first half of Denver’s 51-28 win against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. He also led all NFL players with 15 points scored in Week 14 (3-3 FG, 6-6 PAT) to tie his career high.
