The Tennessee Titans kept things rolling in Week 7, earning a hard-fought 19-10 win over the division rival Indianapolis Colts. Everyone played a part in Tennessee notching its fourth straight victory, which pushed the team's record to 4-2.

Following that big win, one Titan has earned a special honor.

Kicker Randy Bullock is the AFC's Special Teams Player of the Week. He was joined by fellow AFC members Joe Burrow (offensive POTW) and Sauce Gardner (defensive POTW) as honorees, while Cairo Santos took home the same award in the NFC.

It had been a very quiet past couple of weeks for Bullock, but he rose to the occasion when called upon this past Sunday. He made all four his field goal attempts, converting from 27, 28, 38 and 48 yards, while adding a PAT as well.

His 48-yarder in the fourth quarter was especially important, since it increased Tennessee's lead from six to nine points, keeping the Colts at more than a touchdown distance at the end of the game.

Bullock's Week 7 showing boosted him to 8-of-9 on FGs for the year, with his only miss happening all the way back in Week 1. He'll look to come through again for his team in Week 8 against the Houston Texans.

The Titans are 2.5-point favorites ahead of that matchup, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
