While the 2020-2021 season is over for the Raiders, the awards keep coming in for several of their top players. This time, it’s placekicker Daniel Carlson who has been recognized by the NFL.
Carlson has been named the AFC’s Special Teams Player of the Month (December) after connecting on all 10 of his field goals during the final month of the season. He finished the season making 33 of 35 field goals, which was the highest percentage of any kicker in the NFL.
Another nod to @DanielCarlson38‘s record-breaking year.

In total, he scored 44 points in the final four weeks of the season, but Raiders’ fans will remember his missed extra point against the Dolphins in Week 16. It was really his only blemish of the season.
Over the last three seasons, Carlson has made 87 percent of his kicks and has proven to be one of the best placekickers in the NFL.
