Ravens’ Sam Koch named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Sam Koch gets rewarded for his Week 15 performance

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens, while they haven't been a model of consistency this season, have been able to get that consistency with their special teams not only in 2017, but for a long time now.

Sam Koch and Justin Tucker make for one real good punter and kicker duo for any team to have, and Baltimore is very fortunate to have these two on the team, especially with the way the offense has been.

While Koch or Tucker weren't rewarded for a Pro Bowl nod this year, Koch was given a consolation prize for his Week 15 performance against the Cleveland Browns. Koch was awarded the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

While the offense had it's moments against Cleveland, it was Koch who helped provide a lot of key punts in a tight divisional game. Of Koch’s five punts, four of them landed inside the 20. Of those four, three of them landed inside the five yard line.

Koch may have been snubbed of the Pro Bowl, but at this stage of the game, he will take prizes that helps his team win games, and doing whatever he can for them on the road to the postseason.
