Jakeem Grant Sr. Named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Chicago Bears

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.
