Patriots kick returner Devin McCourty was named the AFC's special teams player of the week for his 104-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in New England's victory over the Jets on Sunday.

McCourty also fumbled on a kickoff return in the fourth quarter, which gave the Jets the ball on the 18-yard line and allowed them to kick a go-ahead field goal with less than two minutes left. The Patriots won in overtime.

It is McCourty's first player of the week award. His kick return was the second-longest in Patriots history behind Ellis Hobbs' 108-yard return in 2007.
