For the second week in a row, Buffalo Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, the NFL announced Wednesday.
Hauschka hit all three of the field-goals he attempted in Sunday's 23-17 victory against the Atlanta Falcons, including 56- and 55-yarders in the fourth quarter that provided the margin of victory. His three field goals from 55 yards or beyond are a Bills record.
Hauschka is eight-for-eight on field goals in his last three games, including 53- and 55-yarders against the Denver Broncos. With 11 straight connections of 50 yards or longer, he is one shy of the NFL record.
Hauschka joins Bruce Smith and Cornelius Bennett as the only Bills to win a Player of the Week Award in consecutive weeks.
