Wing had a 41.0-yard net average on seven punts against the Lions, including one that was partially blocked and went just 18 yards. With the Lions trying to mount a comeback in the second half, Wing had three consecutive punts that forced them to take possession at their own three, four and 19-yard lines. Detroit totaled just 11 punt return yards, and three points on seven possessions following Wing’s punts.
Wing also earned the honors last week in a Giants’ 10-7 victory against the Dallas Cowboys, when he had a 43.2-yard gross average and a 42.9-yard net average on nine punts. In that game, five of his kicks were downed inside the 20-yard line. Dallas totaled three yards on three punt returns.
