Detroit Lions punter Sam Martin has been named as the NFC's Special Teams Player of the Week on Wednesday by the National Football League.

Martin had four punts for a nearly 59 yard average in the team's victory over the Indianapolis Colts.  Martin signed a contract extension to remain with the team before the regular season started last week.

Detroit hosts Tennessee on Sunday in the home opener at Ford Field.
