Reggie Wayne AFC Player of the Week
Oct/10/12 08:33 PM Filed in: Reggie Wayne
The NFL has released the official AFC Players of the Week on offense, defense, and special teams with Reggie Wayne, Randy Starks, and Shane Suisham took home the honors in those respective categories.
Wayne caught 13 passes for 212 yards to set a career-high, which is absolutely astounding considering Wayne has been in the league for such a long time. He’s somebody who should be in the Hall of Fame discussion once he retires, so breaking a record like that and getting 200+ yards is nothing to sneeze at. He was the most important player on a Colts team that completed an emotional upset over the Green Bay Packers that helps remind us why we love the game. I can’t think of a player who deserved this week’s honor more.
He is now 17th on the all-time receiving list after pushing past notable receivers in Derrick Mason, Hines Ward, and former San Diego Chargers HOFer Charlie Joyner.
