Bengals kicker Mike Nugent awarded

Cincinnati Bengals kicker Mike Nugent was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week by the NFL on Wednesday for his performance against the Baltimore Ravens. Nugent scored all of Cincinnati's 15 points by going 5-for-5 on field goals.

Nugent also did well on kickoffs by reaching the end zone five times, which negated Baltimore's return game. Nugent beat out Dave Rayner this summer to win the kicking job in Cincinnati.
