Ryan Succop Candidate for Castrol Edge Clutch Performer of the Week

Posted Dec 20, 2016

Titans kicker Ryan Succop is a Candidate for the Castrol Edge Clutch Performer of the Week after his 53-yard field goal defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 15.

Ryan Succop’s game -winning 53-yard field goal, Ben Roethlisberger’s game-winning touchdown pass, Lamar Miller’s  game-winning touchdown run, Aaron Rodgers’ 60-yard pass leading to the game-winning field goal and Sebastian Janikowski’s game-winning field goal are the nominees for the CASTROL EDGE CLUTCH PERFORMER OF THE WEEK for Week 15, the NFL announced today.  The Castrol EDGE Clutch Performer of the Week is the best performer or performance of the week that represents strength in key moments. 

Succop, who played for the Chiefs from 2009-2013, became the first kicker in NFL history to defeat his former team by converting a game-winning, come-from-behind field goal of 50 or more yards as time expired. It marked the Titans’ first game-winning field goal since Rob Bironas made a 40-yarder against Pittsburgh on Oct. 11, 2012. Succop’s field goal tied for the second-longest game-winner in franchise history, equaling Bironas’ 53-yard effort at Houston on Nov. 23, 2009 and behind only Bironas’ 60-yarder against Indianapolis on Dec. 3, 2006. The 53-yarder at Kansas City gave Succop six career game-winning field goals, two of which have come in the fourth quarter and four of which have occurred in overtime.

Fans may vote for one of these five performers on www.nfl.com/castrol-edge through Friday at 3 PM ET to determine the CASTROL EDGE CLUTCH PERFORMER OF THE WEEK. The winner will be announced Friday on NFL Total Access on NFL Network and then posted on NFL.com.
