Thanks in part to fan voting, Elliott won both awards. The players he beat out include: Kareem Hunt, Dalvin Cook, Deshaun Watson, Christian McCaffrey, DeMarco Murray, Jared Goff, Brandin Cooks, and Jordan Howard. Well done, Eagles fans.
Elliott is undoubtedly deserving of the honors. His 61-yard walk-off field goal to beat the New York Giants was as clutch as it gets. It was also the longest make of any rookie kicker in NFL history.
In addition to winning these awards, Elliott was also named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Week 3.
All told, not a bad week to be Jake Elliott.
