Kansas City, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs kicker, Harrison Butker, was named AFC’s special teams player for the month of November. Butker has had a good season so far, and it doesn’t look like he’ll let up, having proved his worth to the Chiefs on several separate occasions.

This season Harrison Butker is 25 of 29 on field goals and is 37 of 39 on extra points. Butker joined the Chiefs in 2017 and signed a 20.3 million contract extension the summer of 2019 for five years, so far he’s been worth the million-dollar price tag for the Chiefs.
He’s scored 42 points in the month of November alone. And one of the weeks they’ve played was their bye week, so he has made 42 points in just three games. Butker has only missed one field goal in the entire month of November; after the Vikings’ game, on November 3, Butker was named the conference’s special teams player of the week.
Getting a Kick out of It
Harrison Butker was the hero for the Vikings game- Butker tied the game with a field goal at 54-yards, a career-long field goal. The game was tied 23-23, and with just three seconds left for the game before it would go into overtime, the special teams took the field. It was a 44-yard field goal, and Harrison Butker made it and won the game 26-23.
Butker also made an impressive field goal during the Raiders game on December 1, which the Chiefs won 40-9. It was made in the second half, from 50-yards away, directly into a strong wind- causing many to doubt his ability to make it. Butker made the goal, however, helping the Chiefs win the game.
Butker also has a website that tells a little about him, and if you click anywhere, you will be taken to the game-winning field goal against the Vikings. You can view it here.
