Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo was a busy man last Sunday.

Koo made five field goals and four extra points in the team’s 43-6 win over the Raiders, but that wasn’t good enough to make him the NFC special teams player of the week on Thursday. Friday brought better news for Koo.

He has been named the conference’s top special teamer for the month of November. Koo’s five field goals made him 10-of-10 on those attempts for the month and he also made all eight extra points that he tried.

Koo has made a league-high 29 field goals so far this season. He’s only missed one field goal try and he’s gone 22-of-25 on extra points for Atlanta.

  1. Ever since back-up Tim Mazzetti, who’d been working as a bartender in Philly days before,came onto the field in a 1978 MNF game in Atlanta, kicking 5 field goals to lead the Falcons over the Rams 15-7, we’ve had some surprisingly good luck with our kickers. Koo inherits that tradition. All the kid needed was some confidence after a somewhat rocky start last year. Good going, Younghoe.
