Leon Washington’s record-tying eighth kickoff return for a touchdown in Sunday’s game against the Dolphins has earned the Seahawks’ return specialist NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors, the League announced this morning.
Washington’s 98-yarder in Miami allowed him to tie the NFL career record that was set by the Browns’ Josh Cribbs.
We covered the record-tying return and Washington’s reaction in this story yesterday, which also includes the video of his return.
“I’m ecstatic,” Washington said. “But I’m humble at the same time, because we can want nine, 10, 11 and 12.”
