Prater's Performance Earns Honor

Matt Prater will be named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, the Broncos learned on Tuesday, for his Week 12 performance in a 26-6 victory over the New York Giants. Prater connected on all four of his field goal attempts (26, 32, 47, 24) in Thursday’s Thanksgiving night matchup and sent all seven of his kickoffs into the end zone, resulting in a career-high five touchbacks.

Ironically, just a short time before the Broncos announced that Prater won the award, the Falcons released former Bronco kicker Jason Elam. I don't know if this is the end of the road for the 39-year-old, but I'll always have respect for him. Congrats on a great career, see you in the Hall Of Fame.
