Jets K Nick Folk was named the AFC's special teams player of the week for his Week 1 performance against Tampa Bay.

Folk connected on three of his field goals, including a game-winning 48-yarder with two seconds remaining in the fourth quarter to help the Jets beat the Bucs, 18-17.

It was his fourth regular-season game-winning field goal since joining the Jets in 2010.

...To no surprise, Peyton Manning was named the AFC's offensive player of the week after throwing seven touchdowns against the Ravens. Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston was voted the AFC's defensive player of the week, after registering five tackles and three sacks in their 28-2 win over the Jaguars.
