No surprise here. After his dazzling performance in Green Bay on Sunday Night Football, Jakeem Grant Sr. has been named the NFC’s Special Teams Player of the Week.
Grant returned a punt 97-yards for a touchdown against the Packers to give the Bears a 24-14 lead with less than two minutes to play in the first half on Sunday night.
That was after he put the Bears up 10-0 earlier in the second quarter on a 46-yard scamper down the sidelines.
All in all, Jakeem Grant Sr. racked up 131 yards and a touchdown on three punt returns and 177 yards and two touchdowns in total on Sunday night.
