Suisham named AFC player of week
By Jamison Hensley
Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for kicking the game-winning 34-yard field goal to beat the Eagles as time expired Sunday.
This marks the second time that Suisham has been named special teams player of the week but it's his first since 2007 when he was a member of the Redskins. Suisham was 3-for-3 (20, 34, 34) on field goals in the 16-14 victory over the Eagles. His final field goal was the fifth game-winner of his career and first since September 2011 at Indianapolis.
Suisham has made all eight of his field goals this season. This ties his second-best streak to start a season. He converted his first 13 field goals in 2009.
