New York Giants kicker Josh Brown has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Week 16 after a three-field goal performance against the Detroit Lions.

Brown made all three of his field goal attempts, including one from 52-yards, one from 41-yards and, of course, the 45-yard game-winner in overtime. It was also the first time in franchise history that a Giants kicker made all of his field goals from 40 yards or beyond.

This marks the fifth time in Brown's career that he's won a Special Teams Player of the Week award, but only the first since Week 8 of the 2009 season when he was with the St. Louis Rams.

The last Giant to win an NFC Special Teams Player of the Week award was kick returner David Wilson in Week 14 of 2012. The last Giants kicker to win the award was Lawrence Tynes in Week 3 of 2012.

Brown is the fourth Giant to win an NFC Player of the Week award this season, joining cornerback Terrell Thomas (Week 8), defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (Week 11) and defensive end Justin Tuck (Week 13).

Wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan was also nominated for NFC Offensive Player of the Week, but was beaten out by Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy.

    I was not impressed with Josh Brown this year. I felt he missed a fee kicks at beginnings of games that really sent the team back. Kickoffs he seemed to do a nice job with though
