Seahawks KR Leon Washington Named NFC Special Teams Player Of The Week
The Seahawks didn't have a lot of highlights in their 24-21 loss to Miami on Sunday, but they did get one from veteran KR Leon Washington in the form a 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
That one big play was enough to tie an NFL record and Washington NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors for Week 12.
With the game tied at 14 after a Dolphins' touchdown with 8:08 left in the fourth quarter, Washington took the ensuing kickoff 98 yards to give the Seahawks the lead. The score was the eighth kickoff return for a touchdown in Washington's seven-year career, tying him with Cleveland's Josh Cribbs for the NFL record.
It took Washington only 235 returns to reach the record-setting mark, while it took Cribbs 261.
