Brandon McManus named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week

This season, Brandon McManus has made 6-of-7 field goals.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The National Football League (NFL) announced Wednesday that Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus is the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

The honor is the first conference recognition of McManus’ career.

McManus connected on 3-of-3 field goal attempts (40, 54, 53) and 4-of-4 PATs for 13 points in Denver's 37-28 win against the Jets on Thursday, Oct. 1.

This season, McManus has made 6-of-7 field goals with his only miss coming from 58 yards out.

The Broncos said McManus passed Ring of Fame kicker Jim Turner last week for the second-most made field goals (157) in franchise history.  

McManus’ honor represents the 27th time a Broncos player has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, according to the Broncos.
