Raiders KR/WR Jacoby Ford has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for 2011 NFL Regular Season Week 6. Ford returned a kickoff 101 yards for a touchdown in the Raiders 24-17 win over the Cleveland Browns this past Sunday.

That kickoff return for a touchdown this past Sunday matches his career-long and ties his mark for the third-longest kickoff return in team history.

Ford is now 10th all-time in Raiders history in kickoff return yardage and has returned four kickoffs for touchdowns in less than two seasons.
