Nick Novak Named AFC Special Teams Player Of The Week

Chargers’ kicker Nick Novak was named AFC special teams player of the week.

Novak rightfully earns this recognition after doing most of his team’s in their 19-9 win over the Colts in which he was successful in all four of his field goal attempts, including a 50-yarder that came with two minutes left.

He’s been perfect on all six attempts of 40 yards or longer this year (he’s missed twice in the 30s, both blocked.) Considering that all of the Chargers’ games have had a point-differential within 10 (three being decided by field goals,) Novak has given the team a much needed bost.
