Steelers Shaun Suisham named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Week 5 performance

By Neal Coolong on Oct 10



The Steelers announced kicker Shaun Suisham has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his three field goal performance in Pittsburgh's 16-14 win over Philadelphia.

Suisham buried a 34-yard field goal as time expired, giving Pittsburgh its first come-from-behind win of the season. He also connected on a field goal from 20 yards and another one from 34 yards.

He is 8-for-8 on the season, heading into Pittsburgh's Week 6 game at Tennessee. He joins seven other kickers in the NFL with a perfect start (on eight or more attempts) to the 2012 season.

It's quite the turnaround for Suisham, who hit on 74.2 percent of his kicks in 2011, including just 6-for-11 from 40-49 yards. He's 2-for-2 from 20-29 and 40-49 yards this year, and 4-for-4 from 30-39 yards.

It's the first time Suisham's been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, but he achieved the same honor in the NFC in Week 9 of the 2007 season when he was kicking for Washington.
