Browns RS-WR Joshua Cribbs garnered AFC Special-Teams Player of the Week honors after making two key returns in Cleveland's win at Indianapolis Sunday, the NFL announced Wednesday.

Cribbs' 52-yard kickoff return in the second quarter put the Browns in good field position for a drive that led to their first touchdown of the game. In the fourth quarter, his 43-yard punt return put Cleveland deep in Indianapolis territory, and the Browns capitalized with RB Peyton Hillis' TD run to push their lead to 24-12.

Cribbs is off to an outstanding start in 2011, with three punt returns of 20 yards or more and two kickoffs of longer than 40 yards already to his credit. He also started at wideout in Week Two, catching three passes for 41 yards. 

This is the fourth time Cribbs has earned AFC Special-Teams Player of the Week honors and the first time since Week 15 of the 2009 season, when he returned two kickoffs for touchdowns in a win at Kansas City.
