This past week against the Atlanta Falcons, Huaschka was a perfect 3-for-3 on field goal attempts, including field goals from 55 and 56-yards in the fourth quarter of the Bills' win.

Last week, Hauschka went a perfect 4-for-4 against the Denver Broncos and was the first kicker in Bills history to convert two field goals of 53-yards or greater in one game. Once again, Hauschka hits two field goals from 53-yards or greater in the same game and is the first Bills special teams player to win the honor in consecutive weeks.

This is now the third time in Hauschka's career where he has been named as the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.
