New York Giants punter Brad Wing has captured his second consecutive NFC Special Teams Player of the Week award in what has been a breakout season for the LSU product.
Brad Wing has become an absolute weapon for the New York Giants during his second season with the team.
Last week, the 25-year old joined Jeff Feagles as just the second Giants’ punter to ever be selected as the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week. With this second award, Wing becomes the only player in team history to win it in consecutive weeks.
He earned his first player of the week nod against the Dallas Cowboys by performing like an absolute game-changer. Wing tied his season high by placing five punts inside the 20-yard line, three of which came inside the 10 with two being downed inside the 5. He also booted a long punt of 57 yards while putting up a 43.2 yard net average.
The Aussie punter again turned heads with another stellar outing against the Detroit Lions this past week. While the box score only shows Wing placed two punts inside the 20, both of those balls were downed within the Lions’ 5-yard line. Again he punted a long of 57 and earned himself a 41 yard net average.
Wing currently ranks second in the NFL in total yards punted, tenth in net average, and is tied for seventh in punts downed inside the 20. He has been an absolute force all season and the scary part is the young punter is only getting better.
