Oakland Raiders WR Jacoby Ford has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for November.

During the month of November, Ford averaged 245 all-purpose yards and scored three touchdowns. Ford, the Raiders’ fourth round pick in 2010 out of Clemson, totaled 439 yards with a 29.3-yard average on 15 kickoff returns and two touchdowns; 283 yards receiving with a 23.6-yard average (on 12 catches) and one touchdown and rushed for 13 yards.

Ford returned two kickoffs for touchdowns during the month of November. He returned a kickoff 94 yards in the third quarter and also added 148 receiving yards on six catches during a 23-20 Raiders overtime win over the Kansas City Chiefs on November 7. Ford’s 47-yard reception set up the game-winning field goal in overtime. 

Ford became the first Raider in team history to return the game-opening kickoff for a score when he ran back the opener 101 yards during the November 28 contest against Miami. Ford also totaled 108 receiving yards on four catches with a 52-yard scoring catch versus the Dolphins.
