The Special Teams Player of the Week honor comes after Spurlock recorded a 77-yard punt return for a touchdown, the fifth-longest in team history during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-17 overtime victory at New Orleans. Spurlock finished the game with two punt returns for 80 yards and the touchdown, as well as five kickoff returns for 116 yards, totaling 196 return yards on the day.
Spurlock, who recorded the first-ever kickoff return for a touchdown in team history in 2007, is now just the second player in team history to record both a kickoff and punt return for touchdowns, joining RB/KR Clifton Smith. Spurlock was signed prior to the Saints game, as both previous return men Smith and WR Sammie Stroughter were on Injured Reserve.
