NFL Names Dan Bailey NFC Special Teams Player Of The Week
With all the drama that has surrounded the Minnesota Vikings kicking game in recently, how great is it to have their kicker named NFC Special Teams Player Of The Week?
According to Vikings.com, kicker Dan Bailey was awarded the honor after his performance in New York in a Vikings victory over the Giants:
Bailey was a perfect 4-for-4 on field goals and 2-for-2 on extra points against the Giants. The former Oklahoma State Cowboy scored 14 points last week, his highest total as a member of the Vikings. Bailey tied Ravens K Justin Tucker and Cardinals K Zane Gonzalez for the most among all specialists in Week 5. The ninth-year pro connected on field goals of 31, 48, 32 and 45 yards at New York and is now 7-for-8 (87.5%) on field goals in 2019.
This is the fourth time Bailey has won the NFC Special Teams Player Of The Week Award, winning the previous times when he was kicking for the Dallas Cowboys.
