Jake Elliott named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week 


Kicker Jake Elliott has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for the second time this season.

Elliott was 4-for-4 on field goals, 2-for-2 on extra points, and kicked a game-winning 54-yard field goal in overtime. He led all NFL kickers in both points (14) and field goals this past week.

Elliott's 54-yarder to finish off the Commanders was the longest overtime game-winning field goal in franchise history since the 1970 merger.

"That was a sweet way to win," said Eagles Head Coach Nick Sirianni. "Jake Elliott is so clutch."

The seven-year veteran won the award in Week 1 when he tallied 13 points and made four field goals, two from beyond 50 yards.

This was the fifth time in Elliott's career that he has taken home NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.

The Eagles have won an NFC Player of the Week award in three of the first four weeks of the season. D'Andre Swift won NFC Offensive Player of the Week after a career-high 175 rushing yards in Week 2.

Elliott is tied for first in the NFL in points (48) and field goals made (13). His 61-yard field goal against Minnesota in Week 2 is the second-longest kick of the season.

Elliott has now made 151 field goals and registered 688 points in his career.

"I feel really good," Elliott said. "I feel like I am building every week. I am hitting a consistent ball, and it is paying off now. We are getting a lot of opportunities."

"The awards are great," Elliott said. "That is something I will look back on later in my career and really appreciate."
