For the second time this season, Nick Folk has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

The Jets kicker converted all four field-goal attempts (39, 21, 47 and 45 yards) in the Jets’ 26-20 win over New Orleans. H is now 23-for-23 to start the season -- the longest streak of field goals made in the NFL. It's also the longest in franchise history.

Folk was named the AFC's ST POW back in Week 1 after delivering a win for the Jets against the Bucs. This is the fourth time in his seven-year career that he's been awarded the honor

Folk’s four field goals were an NFL-best in Week 9 (registering 14 of the Jets’ total 26 points against New Orleans).
