NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Titans running back/kick returner Darius Reynaud has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Reynaud played a key role in Tennessee setting an NFL record with five touchdowns of 60 yards or more in Sunday's 44-41 overtime victory against the Detroit Lions.

In the first quarter, Reynaud fielded a punt at Tennessee's 37-yard line, took two steps back and fired a perfectly-thrown lateral pass across the field to a wide-open Tommie Campbell, who raced 65 yards down the right sideline and into the end zone for a 10-7 Titans lead.

After Detroit took a 27-20 lead midway through the fourth quarter, Reynaud fielded the ensuing kickoff five yards deep into the end zone and brought it back a franchise-record 105 yards for a touchdown, tying the game at 27.

It marked Reynaud's first career NFL touchdown and broke the previous team mark of 104 yards set by Ken Hall vs. the New York Titans on Oct. 23, 1960. He returned four kickoffs for 174 yards (43.5 avg.) on the day.

In his fourth NFL season, the 5-foot-9, 201-pound Reynaud signed as a free agent with the Titans in January after stints with the New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings.
