In Peter King’s Monday Morning QB column Bills long snapper Garrison Sanborn was named his Special Teams Player of the Week.

Sanborn had a pair of special teams tackles in Sunday’s overtime loss including the big one referenced by King. Here’s what he wrote.

Garrison Sanborn, LS, Buffalo. Long-snappers don’t get noticed much. But on the last play of the third quarter in a tight game with Cincinnati, Sanborn snapped from the Buffalo 44-yard line to punter Brian Moorman and took off sprinting. Sanborn ran 51 yards to the Cincinanti 5-yard line, where Adam Jones was trying to find the handle on the punt. Just as he did, Sanborn wrapped up Pacman and downed him at the 5. Great example of hustle and what a big factor a special-teams play can be.
