Kevin Huber – Punters are often overlooked and under-appreciated. Not Huber, and not here. On Sunday, he averaged 47.3 yards per punt, put another inside the 20, and had arguably the play of the game when he dropped a 45 yard punt at the Lions 6 yard line. It was this punt that lead to Detroit’s conservative play calling on their last drive – which eventually led to the Lions crappy punt – and eventually led to the Bengals ability to kick a game winning FG. We will all remember Nugent’s kick, Green’s big plays, the blocked FG, but let’s not forget Huber’s clutch punt.

Special Teams – Sunday was a perfect display of how important special teams are. That game was won by the Bengals special teams – Nugent’s FG, the blocked FG, and Huber’s end of the game punt, and lost by the Lions – blocked FG, terrible punt at the end of the game. Outside of Nugent’s missed FG earlier in the game, this was a great day for special teams.
