    Brett Maher Named NFC Special Teams Player of Week 7, 2019

    's 63-yard field goal last Sunday may have been a drop in the bucket on the scoreboard for the . But the historical significance of that kick, and it's near record-breaking distance, helped Maher earn the Player of the Week award for Week 7 of the .

    Maher went 3/3 on the day as the Cowboys routed the . But it was the 63-yard FG at the close of the first half which brought Brett this latest accolade. He became the first in NFL have three career field goals of 60 yards or more.

    Maher's kick was one yard short of tying the record, 64 yards, set by Matt Prater in 2013.

    It was weeks like this one which helped Brett Maher keep the Cowboys' kicker job this year despite mixed results in 2018. He won two Player of the Week awards last season and showed off his rare long-range ability, but was one of the least accurate kickers overall from shorter distances.

    That same mixed bag has been seen this year. Despite his work on Sunday, Maher is at just 71% accuracy on his total field goal attempts right now.

    Hopefully, Brett's big day over the Eagles will spark a hot streak. His range is an incredible weapon for the Cowboys; can he consistently prove that he's more of an asset than a liability?
