Cairo Santos named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week


by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Bears kicker Cairo Santos was named NFC Special Teams of the Week, the league announced on Wednesday.

He converted on all three field goals and his two extra points in the Bears' 23-16 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

For the season, he is now an impressive 10-for-12 on field goals attempts including nailing his last seven in a row.

Bears fans are certainly happy to see some stability with the kicker as it has loomed large the last few years with spotty kicking.
