NASHVILLE – Titans punter Ryan Stonehouse has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance against the Broncos.
Stonehouse punted eight times for a 54.0-yard gross average and a 47.3-yard net average with three punts placed inside the 10 against the Broncos.
Stonehouse pinned the Broncos inside their own 10-yard line three times in the first quarter of Sunday's 17-10 win, first on the four-yard line with a 64-yard punt. Later, Stonehouse saw his punt downed on the six-yard line with a 38-yard punt before having his punt downed on the eight-yard line with a 42-yard punt.
Stonehouse booted a 74-yard punt in the second quarter, his longest punt through nine NFL games. It was the Titans' longest punt since Brett Kern's 74-yarder against Cincinnati on Nov. 12, 2017.
Stonehouse, who signed with the team as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado State, was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month in October after averaging 51.7 yards on 20 punts, with a long of 66 yards.
This is Stonehouse's first-career Special Teams Player of the Week award and, per the NFL, he becomes the first-ever Tennessee rookie punter to earn the honor.
Stonehouse also becomes the first player from Colorado State to ever win Special Teams Player of the Week.
The Titans return to action on Thursday night in Green Bay against the Packers.
