Congratulations to KC Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos who has been named the AFC special teams player of the month. As the NFL says, this is the first Chiefs kicker to win special teams player of the month since Pete “For President” Stoyanovich.

Santos has been getting a lot of work lately (ahem, Chiefs red zone offense). He was four for four in back to back weeks to start the month then has gone three for three in the past two games. That’s 11 for 11 in the month of November.
