Jay Feely named NFC special teamer of the week after kicking winner in OT

The Cardinals did their very best to blow last Sunday’s game against the Titans by giving up 17 unanswered points in the fourth quarter, but they picked off Ryan Fitzpatrick in overtime to set themselves up with a chance to win.

And win they did when Jay Feely banged home a 41-yard kick to give Arizona a 37-34 win that kept their playoff hopes alive heading into the final two weeks of the season. That boot helped Feely gain the honor of being the NFC special teams player of the week.

Feely hit three field goals overall for the Cardinals in Week 15, the first two of which helped them build a secure-seeming 34-17 lead with a little more than six minutes left to play. It was a good rebound for Feely, who missed both of his field goal tries against the Rams in Week 14, and moved him to 25-of-29 on field goals for the season.

It’s the third time that Feely has been named the winner of a weekly award, but it’s been a bit of a wait as he was last honored in 2010.

    It was always fun to watch him on kickoffs. Some kickers look to the sidelines; Jay always ran downfield looking to make the tackle, and he brought it.
    Our other former kicker, now with Denver, is also lighting it up. Fortunately, we got a good kicker from TB a few years ago, and he has been very consistent.

    What did the Ravens’ Tucker do? or not do?

    Scored all their points, kicked a personal best 61 yard FG in the last minute to win the game.

    What he didn’t do is play in the NFC.

    I’m trying to remember what happened to Arizona last year during their trip to Seattle…hmmm, I can’t remember the score, what was it again?

    I don’t think he’ll be needed much when it’s 28-0 in the first half.

    Correct, and Tuck did win the AFC special teams player of the week.
