The NFL has named Seattle return specialist Nate Burleson as its special-teams player of the month for the NFC in November (after reading Dave Boling's column today, I'm sure). From the league release: "Burleson had 14 punt returns for 193 yards and an NFC-best 13.8-yard return average, including a 90-yard touchdown, and added five kick returns for 129 yards and a 25.8-yard return average during the month. In a divisional showdown against St. Louis on November 12, Burleson averaged 31.7 yards per punt return, including a 90-yard touchdown, the second-longest in franchise history and the lone punt-return touchdown in the NFC during November. In addition to his punt returns, Burleson returned five kickoffs for 129 yards (25.8 average), including a 45-yard return, in the Monday night contest against Green Bay in the snow. The Seahawks went 3-1 in the month and are in first place in the NFC West. In his fourth season from Nevada, this is Burleson's first Player of the Month Award."
