Chiefs Punter Dustin Colquitt Wins Peter King's Special Teams Player Of Week Mention

While the Kansas City Chiefs likely wanted to see more out of their offense than what was presented Sunday on the field in Denver, they’ll take the win over the Broncos. And much of that is due to the field position they placed Tim Tebow in. That’s why Peter King gives Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt his Special Teams Player of the Week award in his latest Monday Morning Quarterback column.

“The Chiefs-Broncos contest was a field-position game throughout and here’s where the Broncos took over after Colquitt punts: the Denver 10, 14, 26, 16, 19, 49 (of Kansas City), 25 and 16,” writes King. “If you’re going to force Tim Tebow to start from his 20 or worse five times, you have to like your chance to win. For the day, Colquitt — whose brother Britton was Denver’s punter Sunday — averaged 47.1 yards per punt, with a net of 41.8.”

Colquitt has never made the Pro Bowl but this season presents a good opportunity for him to do so.
