The NFL named Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker its AFC special-teams player of the week for Week 2.
Butker, 25, was 3 for 3 on field goals in the Chiefs’ 23-20 overtime win over the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Butker hit from 58 yards out in the third quarter, 30 in the fourth quarter and 58 again in overtime to send the Chiefs home with a victory.
This is Butker’s fourth weekly award win since joining the Chiefs in 2017. Butker won the award twice in 2017 and most recently in Week 9 of 2019 against the Minnesota Vikings, when he hit a 44-yarder in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter to give the Chiefs a much-needed win.
With the offseason departure of punter Dustin Colquitt, Butker assumed a leadership role among the specialists. The Chiefs signed the kicker to a five-year contract extension last June that will keep him in Kansas City through 2024.
