Bailey punted eight times against the Eagles, notching a 47.6 gross average and an impressive 46.0-yard net. Five of his punts were longer than 50 yards, while six landed inside the 20-yard line. He finished his day of work with a 54-yard boomer downed at the Philly 12-yard line in the final minute of the game with the Patriots leading 17-10.

It is the second time Bailey has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week this season. He also earned the award for the first time in his career in New England’s Week 3 win over the Jets.
