Stephen Hauschka named AFC special teams player of the week

The Bills have a simple, yet elegant formula to try to win this season.

They’re going to play defense, they’re going to run the ball, and they’re going to rely on special teams. That plan works even better when the kicker is as prolific and accurate as Stephen Hauschka.

The veteran kicker was named AFC special teams player of the week for going deep twice in last week’s road win at Atlanta.

He hit from 55 and 56 yards late in the upset, giving the Bills enough of a margin to help them in prove to 3-1. He’s now hit 11 straight from 50 yards or long, and hasn’t missed one of that range since 2014 when he was with the Seahawks.

He’s 8-of-9 overall this year, and the Bills are glad to have such a weapon since they figure to be in a number of close games this year.

  1. As my name indicates, I’ve been here a while – so i’m not filled with optimism yet. The Bills still have plenty of season left to “Bills up the joint”… {eyeroll}

    I know we have “offensive problems”, and I know that Stephen isn’t going to be as “money” when the winter winds start howling off the Lake.

    I want to see the Bills beat the Bengals this weekend and go into the bye with a few big wins and take care of business against the teams they SHOULD beat.

    It *IS* kinda nice to have people recognize the Bills as a potentially viable team, though.

  2. Hauschka deserved the award again, plain and simple. Hitting those long ones on the road, in front of all those noisy fans, is quite an accomplishment.

    I don’t know about all that. The combination of Bills fans and empty seats that made up most of the crowd weren’t making a lot of noise during his kicks.

    Empty seats? Where? Although you are correct, a huge number of Bills fans did make it to the game. #BILLSMAFIA
