Chiefs K Ryan Succop Named AFC Special Teams Player Of The Week

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Green Bay Packers last weekend due in part to the leg of Ryan Succop who kicked four field goals and an extra point in helping the Chiefs to victory.

For that, the league has announced Succop as the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Succop has now made a whopping 21 straight field goals, which ties him with Nick Lowery for second in franchise history. Pete Stoyanovich holds the all-time franchise record of 22 consecutive field goals made so Succop will have a shot to break that record this year.

He currently has the NFL's longest active streak for consecutive field goals made and all this comes after he started the season connecting on only two of his first five field goal attempts.

This is the second time this year Succop has won the award with the last time coming in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings when he was 5-for-5 in the field goal department.

Obviously we'd prefer more touchdowns but if the Chiefs are going to be kicking a lot of field goals, they might as well make 'em. Nice work, Succop.
