JACKSONVILLE – Josh Lambo has been honored again.

Lambo, the Jaguars' fifth-year kicker, on Wednesday morning was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance this past Sunday in a 27-17 victory the Cincinnati Bengals. It's the second time this season Lambo has been so honored.

Lambo scored 13 points against Cincinnati, converting all four of his field goals and his only extra point. He has converted 18 of 18 field goals and 10 of 10 extra points this season.

Lambo also was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week following a Week 4 game in which he kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired in a victory at Denver.

Lambo's 18 made field goals are tied with Arizona kicker Zane Gonzalez for the most in the NFL this season, and he and Baltimore kicker Justin Tucker are the only NFL kickers this season with at least 15 field-goal attempts who have made all attempts.

Lambo has converted 20 consecutive field goals dating to last season, the second-longest streak in franchise history and the longest active streak in the NFL.

Lambo is the first Jaguars kicker since Josh Scobee in 2005 (Weeks 1 and 5) to be named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week multiple times in the same season.
