Steelers K Chris Boswell Named AFC Special Teams Player Of The Week

Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Sundays win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Boswell, who was only signed just a few weeks ago by the Steelers, kicked four field goals in the team’s 25-13 win. The Rice product connected from 47, 48, 51 and 28 yards out in addition to making his lone extra-point attempt.

Boswell became the first Steelers kicker to make three kicks of 47 or more yards in a single game. The fact that he was able to do that at Heinz Field makes his accomplishment even more impressive.

“I’m just happy I could go out there and make them,” Boswell said after Sunday’s game. “I’m doing the best I can do and just trying to do my job.”

The Steelers certainly appear to have found a reliable kicker with a strong leg. Boswell is now their fourth kicker this season. He was signed by the team after veteran Josh Scobee missed two key field goal attempts in the Week 4 game against the Baltimore Ravens.
