Congrats must go out to the clutch kicking of San Diego Chargers K Nick Novak. With his performance on Monday Night Football, he has won the award for AFC Special Teams player of the week. How many weekly awards have we won this year already? Didn’t Philip Rivers win one earlier in the year? Keenan Allen is up for the rookie of the week award this week also. Did we do anything like this last season with Norv Turner running the ship?

Love the way that some of these guys are playing right now.

Nick Novak was rock solid this weekend. Mike McCoy relied on him to seal the game with that 51 yard field goal attempt and he came through in the clutch. You can’t second guess the decision for Mike McCoy because it worked. Way to make the coach look good on that decision Nick!
