Saints Kicker Wil Lutz Wins Weekly NFL Award
The New Orleans Saints have dealt with injuries and poor play so far this season, but none of that mattered as the team put away arch-rival Carolina on Sunday. Any accolades awarded to a Saint not named Drew Brees is a great sign at this point. So it's time to celebrate, according to the Louisiana Radio Network:
"Saints kicker Wil Lutz has been named NFC Special Teams player of the week. He kicked the 52-yard field goal that gave New Orleans a 41-38 win over Carolina.
Coach Sean Payton says rookie wide receiver Jake Lampman received a game ball for his efforts on special teams as he had three tackles against the Panthers after being elevated from the practice squad."
