New York Giants’ punter Brad Wing has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for the second consecutive week for his work Sunday against the Detroit Lions.

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.

Pro Bowl rosters were announced Tuesday night, and Wing was not selected. Was he the biggest snub among the Giants?
