Broncos placekicker Matt Prater was awarded AFC special teams player of the week for Week Four after converting all three of his field-goal attempts and four extra points in Denver’s smashing, 37-6 blowout victory over the Oakland Raiders.
Prater also produced a touchback on each of his eight kickoffs.
Strong-legged Prater’s field goals came from 21, 43, and 53 yards out. He is now 14-of-18 in his career on tries from 50 yards or longer, good for a 77.8-percent clip. No kicker has a better conversion rate since the 1970 merger.
Prater is also 27-of-28 lifetime on field-goal attempts in the fourth quarter, good for another league record.
Prater has yet to miss a kick this season. 20 of his 24 kickoffs have been good for touchbacks.
