Boswell earns AFC honor

Posted Dec 6, 2017

Chris Boswell was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Time and again Chris Boswell has come through for the Steelers this year, and he was recognized for his latest heroics when he was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance against the Cincinnati Bengals.

In a game that was tightly contested, it was Boswell who would come through with a game-winning 38-yard field goal as time ran off the clock, giving the Steelers a 23-20 win at Paul Brown Stadium.

Boswell hit three field goals in the game, including one at the end of the first half with time expiring as well, giving the Steelers a much-needed boost heading into halftime.

In four career games in Cincinnati, including one playoff game, Boswell has connected on all 17 of his field goal attempts. The key for him is always treating every kick the same, regardless of what is on the line.

“You’ve got to remember the same thing you do every time,” said Boswell. “You can’t put too much pressure on one kick, not enough on another kick. It’s just kick by kick. You just move on with it.”

It’s the third time in four games that Boswell has hit a game-winning walk-off field goal, previously doing so against Green Bay and Indianapolis.

Boswell was previously named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month (December/January) and AFC Special Teams Player of the Week (Week 6) during the 2015 season.
