BUCCANEERS K ROBERTO AGUAYO NAMED NFC SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK

The National Football League announced today that Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Roberto Aguayo has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Week 11.
 
Aguayo, earning his first career Player of the Week award, connected on all four of his field goal attempts and his lone extra point attempt in the Buccaneers’ 19-17 victory at Kansas City, snapping a 10-game home winning streak for the Chiefs. Aguayo’s 13 points and four made field goals were the most of any kicker in Week 11. Since the start of Week 7, Aguayo has gone 9-for-10 (90.0 pct.) on field goals and 12-of-13 (92.3 pct.) on extra points, totaling 39 points, the seventh-most in the NFL during that time.
 
At Kansas City, Aguayo made three field goals in the first half, the most by a Buccaneers kicker without a miss since 2011, when Connor Barth went 4-for-4 against Carolina (12/4/11). Aguayo is the first Buccaneers kicker to make all four field goal attempts without a miss since Barth in that Carolina contest.
 
Aguayo is the first Buccaneers kicker to earn NFC Special Teams Player of the Week since 2008 (Matt Bryant, Week 4 vs. Green Bay). Aguayo is the first Buccaneers rookie to earn the award since kick returner Clifton Smith did so in 2008 (Week 9 at Kansas City). Aguayo joins Martin Gramatica (1999) as the only two rookie kickers in franchise history to earn NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.
