Placekicker David Akers has been named the NFC's Special Teams Player of the Month for November after he connected on all 13 of his field goal attempts and 11 of 12 extra points. Akers currently leads the NFL with 101 points scored and in total field goals (24), ranks tied for first in the league with 11 field goals of 40-plus yards and is fifth in the league with a field goal percentage of 88.9 (24 of 27 field goals made).

He is coming off a game against Washington in which Akers made all four of his field goal attempts, including the game winner from 32 yards out with 1 minute, 48 seconds remaining in the game.

A three-time Pro Bowl kicker and the Eagles' all-time leading scorer, Akers is the second player to be honored as the conference's Special Teams Player of the Month. DeSean Jackson won the award in September.
