The Eagles were able to defeat the Giants and clinch the NFC’s No. 1 overall seed and they needed several Jake Elliott kicks to do it.

Elliott has now been named NFC special teams player of the week for his performance.

He hit all five of his field goals from 32, 52, 39, 54, and 22 yards. He also nailed the extra point after Boston Scott’s 8-yard touchdown in the first quarter.

In his sixth year kicking for the Eagles, Elliott finished the season 20-of-23 on field goals and 51-of-53 on extra points. No one attempted or made more extra points than Elliott in 2022.

He also sent 69 percent of his kickoffs for touchbacks.

  1. Points are Points.. We’ll take it, 10 possessions per game, if he can hit them all on FGs, that’s 30 points. Not pretty, but if you need it, its a beautiful thing to have in your weaponry.
    queue up the “but FGs are not TD’s” comments. They ARE Points.Mark Mosely was an NFL MVP because he won games with FGs. Turns out more points than the opponent equals WIN.
