Giants P Brad Wing has won NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for the second straight week, the NFL announced Wednesday morning.
Wing becomes the first player in Giants history to win Special Teams Player of the Week in consecutive weeks.
The 25-year old punted the ball seven times during New York's 17-6 victory over the Lions on Sunday, and finished with an average of 42.6 yards per punt with two landing inside the 20-yard line and his longest punt going 57 yards. The Lions averaged just 2.8 yards on four returns.
This is the seventh Player of the Week award won by the Giants this year, and the third one on special teams; Janoris Jenkins was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week in Week 2. Odell Beckham Jr. was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week in Week 6, while the Giants have won three defensive awards -- Landon Collins in Weeks 7 and 9, and Jason Pierre-Paul in Week 12. Wing also won the Special Teams award in Week 14.
On 82 punts this season, Wing has a gross punting average of 46.2 yards, a net punting average of 41.0 yards, and 26 punts downed inside the 20-yard line.
Wing is another addition fans forget about. They cried when the beloved Steve Weatherford was shown the door in favor of Wing, who the Giants traded a late-round pick for. They cry no more. This guy is turning out to be a great punter. It's another reason why the Giants are 10-4 this season.
