Did you know that Randy Bullock accounted for 19 of the Texans' 25 points in last week's win over the Ravens? That performance deservedly won him AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors. NFL Communications had this to say:

-Bullock converted all six field-goal attempts and one PAT for 19 total points in the Texans’ 25-13 win against Baltimore.

-He led all players in scoring in Week 16, accounting for 19 of the Houston’s 25 points to help keep the Texans in the hunt for an AFC playoff berth.

-Bullock’s career-high six made field goals (35, 25, 30, 20, 39 and 33 yards) set a single-game Texans record, and he is the only NFL player to convert six field-goal attempts in a game this season.

-In his third season from Texas A&M, this is Bullock’s first career Player of the Week Award.

-Bullock is the first Texans player to be named Special Teams Player of the Week since kick returner-wide receiver Jacoby Jones in 2009 (Week 4) and first kicker since Kris Brown in 2007 (Week 5).

The Texans' official site with some more good data:

The third-year player out of Texas A&M is 30-of-35 on the season, besting his previous career-high of 26 made field goals. The six-field goal effort moved Bullock into third place on the franchise’s single-season made field goals list and third place on the single-season points scored list (127). Bullock also had four touchbacks on eight kickoffs.

Congratulations to Mr. Bullock. That's a nice way to enter the holiday season.
