CB Maurice Leggett Named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week
Dec 02, 2008, 2:00:19 PM


The National Football League informed the Chiefs on Tuesday that CB Maurice Leggett has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his efforts in Week 13 of the 2008 NFL regular season. This marks the first time Leggett has earned this distinction, becoming the second Chiefs defender to ever win this honor. S Bernard Pollard was the first Chiefs player to take home AFC Special Teams POW accolades in Week 17 of 2006 after blocking a punt and recovering it in the end zone for a TD in a 35-30 win vs. Jacksonville (12/31).

Leggett (5-11, 188) was a principle contributor in the Chiefs defeating AFC West rival Oakland 20-13 last Sunday (11/30). An undrafted rookie, Leggett contributed four special teams tackles in the contest with his biggest contribution occurring when he scooped up a fumble on a fake field goal attempt and raced for a 67-yard TD. The second-quarter play gave the Chiefs a 10-3 lead and proved to be a pivotal part of the Chiefs 20-13 victory in Oakland.

Leggett has appeared in 11 NFL contests (two starts) as a rookie for Kansas City, recording 29 tackles (26 solo) and three passes defensed. He has also added five kickoff returns for 103 yards (20.6 avg.) and five special teams stops. The McKeesport, Pennsylvania native was a three-year starter at NCAA Division II Valdosta State and prepped at Mt. Zion High School in Jonesboro, Georgia.

He was playing really good, congrats to him. Seriously though, how dumb do you have to be to go for a fake field goal with the fattest kicker in NFL history?

Is Special Teams POW something relatively new? Because if its not, I would think that Dante Hall would have won it a time or two.

my guess is that Dante Hall was an offensive player.

The "neat-o fun fact" states that Leggett is the 2nd Defensive player.
I think Dante Hall won his share of Special Teams POW awards

I got stuck on this line and didn't pay attention to the sentence before it.

I thought he played great last week against the Bills. He was around the ball all the time, unlike some of the other ghosts that play on the defense.

that was the worst play i've ever seen. Thanks Mo Leggett for being in the right place at the right time and not fumbling it or doing something stupid!

Brandon Carr & Maurice Leggett. Division II football, y'all. Wise up to it.

So how do they determine it if no one returns a fumble recovery or kickoff back for a TD?

I wouldn't mind having a Brandon Carr jersey. I hope he stays with us.

Leggett's really been showing up the past couple of games. Seems like his name's called all the time.
