Nick Novak wins AFC special teams award


Since he did most of the scoring, Nick Novak should win most of the awards.

The Chargers kicker was named AFC special teams player of the week, after hitting all four field goals in his team’s 19-9 win over the Colts.

Novak’s night included a 50-yarder with two minutes left, which pushed it to the final margin.

He’s been perfect on all six attempts of 40 yards or longer this year (he’s missed twice in the 30s, both blocked), and that gives the Chargers a boost they can use, since all of their games have been within 10 points, and three of them have been decided by a field goal.
