Marquette King is finally getting some recognition for that right leg of his.
The Oakland Raiders' punter is your AFC Special Teamer of Week 16 after a sensational performance vs. the San Diego Chargers on Christmas Eve.
King deserved his first weekly award. Six of his eight combined punts landed inside San Diego's 20-yard line. Two of those punts backed the Bolts up at the 10-yard line or better.
He now leads the NFL in punts downed (20) and h is 3 9 punts inside the 20-yard-line is just one fewer than t he l eague leader, Rams Johnny Hekker .
Oakland needed every bit of King's leg to win. It's offense could barely move in the second half, but with King, it won the game of field position -- and then the game overall.
