Titans K Ryan Succop AFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Posted Oct 18, 2017

Titans kicker Ryan Succop has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance in Monday night’s win over the Colts, when he made all five of his field goal attempts.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Titans kicker Ryan Succop keeps making field goals, and he keeps winning awards.

Succop has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance in Monday night’s win over the Colts.

Succop, named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month in September, made all five of his field goal attempts against the Colts, hitting from 48, 32, 40, 48 and 23 yards. His five field goals tied for the second-highest total of his career, and he became only the fourth player in franchise history to make at least five field goals in a game.

He joined Rob Bironas (NFL record of eight field goals in a game on Oct. 21, 2007), Al Del Greco (five on Dec. 3, 2000) and Roy Gerela (five on Sept. 28, 1969).

With a 48-yard field goal in the first quarter, Succop set a new NFL record by making his 47th consecutive field goal from inside 50 yards. When he added four more field goals in the game, he extended the streak to 51 consecutive field goals from inside 50 yards. His streak dates back to 2014.

The previous NFL record of 46 straight field goals from inside 50 yards was set by Atlanta Falcons kicker Matt Bryant from 2013–2015.

Also, with five field goals and three extra points, Succop totaled 18 points in the contest. Only five players in franchise history (Billy Cannon, Rob Bironas, George Blanda, Earl Campbell and Lorenzo White) have scored more than 18 points in a game (several have scored 18 points).
