Stephen Gostkowski named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month

With all of the points the New England Patriots are putting up, kicker Stephen Gostkowski has been challenged frequently to drill the new 33-yard extra point. As he's done throughout his career, Gostkowski has converted with ease, making all 14 extra points and seven field goal attempts.

He leads the NFL in points with 35, and after getting off to a great start in 2015, Gostkowski was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for September.

It's the third time Gostkowski has won the award, his first since October of 2013. In Week 3, Gostkowski set an NFL record for consecutive extra points made with 425, passing Matt Stover at 422.
