Harrison Butker wins special teams award after hitting 15 field goals in December

Harrison Butker is your AFC special teams player of the month after hitting 15 field goals in the month of December. The NFL made the announcement today.

I still can’t get over Butker’s rise. When the Chiefs lost Cairo Santos early in the season, I was sure the Chiefs were going to get a bad kicker to replace him and that would sink their season. Instead, Butker’s had an incredible season and has been better than anyone thought. He was the Chiefs’ top ranked kicker coming out of college and pounced when they had the shot.

I’m feeling confident with Butker back there.
