BDC 11/22: McKelvin’s Efforts Recognized

Posted by Bills Daily Charge on November 22, 2012 – 10:44 am


DAILY REPORT
–The NFL announced yesterday that Bills PR/CB Leodis McKelvin was named the Week 11 AFC Special Teams Player of the Week. McKelvin, who leads the NFL with two punt return-touchdowns this season, registered a 79-yard punt return-touchdown in the Bills’ 19-14 win over Miami on Thursday Night Football. His 79-yard PR-TD was the longest in Week 11 and was the Bills’ only touchdown of the game. It marked the third-longest punt return in the league this season. McKelvin registered the longest punt return of the year with an 88-yard PR-TD in Week 2 against Kansas City. Since 2011, McKelvin has three punt return-touchdowns, the second-most in the NFL (Patrick Peterson, four). In his fifth season from Troy, this is McKelvin’s first career Special Teams Player of the Week Award. He is the first Bills returner to win Special Teams Player of the Week since C.J. Spiller in 2010 (Week 3).

 

QUOTE OF THE DAY
WR Stevie Johnson
Q: Going on over to the other side of the field a guy like Reggie Wayne, I’m sure that you watched before you even came into the league. It seems like you guys have some similarities in your game. When you see a guy like that on other side of the field does it step your game up when you are going up against top number one wide receiver?
A: I don’t step my game up. I think every week I go out there and try to prove to the world and prove to my teammates that I’m a starting receiver in this league, that I am one of those factors. When I see a guy like him it’s always going to be like a big brother, I haven’t talk to him before but like watching your big brother work because him being a receiver, him being one of those vets in the league, so I want to do well so he can maybe notice me. It should be interesting and be fun, but hopefully Stephon (Gilmore) and them give him the business and he won’t have a big game.
