Royal wins AFC Special Teams Player of the Week

October 20, 2009

Picture 1No Denver Broncos player has ever returned a Kickoff and a Punt return for a Touchdown in the same game since 1961 with Al Frazier. Last night Eddie Royal did so in the Broncos 34-23 win over the San Diego Chargers, and is getting some recognition from the NFL for his efforts.

That is why Royal has been awarded this weeks AFC Special Teams player of the week award. This would be Eddie Royals’ first such type of an award, and would be the third player of the week award given to a Denver Bronco this season. The others would be Quarterback Kyle Orton and Cornerback Champ Bailey.

The final stats for the night were five kickoffs for 158 yards (31.6 avg.) and three punts for 77 yards. His 235 total return yards set a franchise record.

Congratulations to Eddie, and we hope to see more awards like this as the season rolls on!
