Jarvis Landry's star continues to rise.
The NFL has named Landry the AFC's special teams player of the week in recognition of his game-winning, 69-yard punt return for a touchdown on Sunday.
Landry becomes the Dolphins' first special-teams honoree since Olivier Vernon took home the award in Week 8 of the 2012 season, and the 14th overall for the franchise since the designation was established in 1993.
Landry, who also caught a career-high eight passes for 53 yards in Sunday's 17-10 victory over the Redskins, told the Miami Herald this week that he would be open to returning punts on a full-time basis.
