Andy Lee named ESPN's punter of the week


SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- For the second time this season, Andy Lee has been named the NFL’s punter of the week by ESPN Stats & Info’s Mark Simon.

Lee, who was co-punter of the week after the San Francisco 49ers’ victory at the St., Louis Rams on Oct. 13 with the Indianapolis Colts' Pat McAfee , averaged 50.3 yards gross, 50.8 net yards in the Niners’ 17-13 victory over Washington on Sunday.

“The key punt for Lee was his last one,” Simon wrote, “a 56-yarder that (with the help of a…penalty) flipped the field and netted 63 yards to push (Washington) back to (its) own 10 with 1:40 remaining and the 49ers leading, 17-13."

Simon’s Honorable Mention punters for the week were McAfee, the St. Louis RamsJohnny Hekker and the New England Patriots’ Ryan Allen.
