Steelers rookie Emmanuel Sanders, whose 48-yard kickoff return set up Jeff Reed's game-winning field goal in Miami, has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Sanders' average of 28.8 yards on five kickoff returns led the AFC last week.

He is the first Steelers kickoff returner to win Player of the Week honors since Antwaan Randle El.
