Kaelin Clay and Brent Urban had claims to it, but Will Hill is the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Ravens safety Will Hill was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Week 12, honored for his game-winning, 64-yard touchdown scored on a blocked field-goal attempt as time expired Monday against the Cleveland Browns.

The Ravens certainly had plenty of contenders for that crown, including rookie wide receiver-return specialist Kaelin Clay, who in his second game with the team returned a first-quarter punt 82 yards for a touchdown.

Defensive end Brent Urban, who blocked the kick that led to Hill's decisive return, certainly was a worthy candidate.

But the honor went to Hill, who became the second Ravens player to win the award this season after kicker Justin Tucker won in Week 4 for his late field-goal heroics against the Pittsburgh Steelers and in Week 8 for his overtime winner against the San Diego Chargers.
