Browns rookie DB Denzel Ward has earned AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for games played Oct. 4-8 (Week 5), the National Football League announced Wednesday.

In a 12-9 overtime victory against Baltimore on Sunday, Ward blocked a field goal and recorded one interception, five tackles and three passes defensed. He blocked a 48-yard field goal attempt as time expired at the end of the first half. His interception came on a second-and-goal from the 2-yard line to thwart a potential Ravens scoring drive.
