Townsend named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - Kansas City Chiefs punter Tommy Townsend was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month following a stellar September.
The third-year professional out of Florida earned the honor after placing five of his 11 punts inside the 20-yard line. Townsend is averaging 55.6 yards per punt with a net average of 49.6 yards.
Townsend was last named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month in November 2021. He’s been a standout performer on a special teams group that has been missing kicker Harrison Butker for two weeks. The Chiefs’ special teams unit struggled in the kick and punt return area during Sunday’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
