By Pat Yasinskas
Atlanta Falcons kicker Matt Bryant has been selected as the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week, the NFL just announced.
Bryant made a 43-yard field goal with seven seconds left to give the Falcons a 16-14 win over San Francisco on Sunday. Bryant also hit a game-winning field goal against New Orleans the previous week.
Bryant, who also spent time in Tampa Bay, has won the award five times in his career, but this is the first time with Atlanta. On the season, Bryant has made 90.9 percent of his field-goal attempts.
