For the fourth time in three seasons, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Tucker converted all three of his field-goal attempts in the Ravens' 23-21 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, and his 32-yarder as time expired provided the decisive points in the road win. The kick was Tucker's seventh career game-winner.

He also made field goals from 38 yards and 21 yards in the game. For the season, Tucker is 8-for-9 with his only miss coming from 55 yards in the Ravens' season-opening loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

The last time that he won the award was Week 15 last season, when he set franchise records with six field goals and a game-winning, 61-yarder in the Ravens' 18-16 victorry over the Detroit Lions.
