Johnny Hekker helps continue Rams special teams streak

AP

Earlier this year, playing against the Lions was your ticket of special teams player of the week honors.

Suddenly, you have to play for the Rams.

Rams punter Johnny Hekker won NFC special teams player of the week honors, the week after teammate Greg Zuerlein did.

According to the league, that’s the first time rookie kicker-punter combos have doubled up.

Hekker averaged 56.9 yards per on seven punts in the win over Arizona, the franchise high for a single game. Three landed inside the 20, and he had a net average of 46.0 per punt.

    That’s a bad sign when your punter wins player of the week.

    Umm, you do know that the Rams throttled the previously unbeaten Cardinals in that game right?

  2. Looks like another Great move by the Fish and his boys to go out and get young legs that are winning games for the Rams….

    Correction. The Rams defense throttled the Cardinals. I wouldn’t call a 7 punt, 242 total yard performance by the offense a success.

  4. Bad sign??? You do know it was Special Teams Player of the Week right?
    Love how people want to keep criticizing the Rams stats in their last win- but it sure was plenty enough to beat an undefeated overrated team wasn’t it?

    I thought you stated that when the Punter is the Special Teams Player of the Week that it is a bad sign. Rams Offense put up 17 – Cardinals Offense put up 3. The Defense played out of its mind, but the Rams offense played well also.

    If a “bad sign” is a win by 14 point win over a division rival, I am hoping for more “bad signs” the rest of this year.

    you’re an idiot. That’s Not “best player of the Rams” for the week – it’s the best Punter in the NFC for the week.

    That means he was better than the other 15 Punters in the NFC.

    If I really need to break down for ya barney style I can..
