Bills kicker Tyler Bass has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month.
In October, Bass made 100% of his field goal and extra point attempts. He kicked 10 field goals and 13 PATs to total 43 points, the third-most in the NFL that month.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen says he has a lot of confidence in his kicker.
“He’s unbelievable,” Allen said. “He works extremely hard. He’s a guy that we can count on. He’s got a lot of confidence in himself and when you have a kicker that has confidence in himself, everybody can feel it, and everybody can see it.”
Bass kicked a 57-yard field goal against Miami in Week 8, which is the second-longest of his career. He also made a 52-yard field goal in Nashville against the Titans.
The Georgia Southern product had to battle tough kicking conditions like rain and wind in Week 4 (vs. Houston), Week 5 (at Kansas City) and Week 8 (vs. Miami).
Bass has scored 71 points (2nd in the NFL) and made 16 field goals (2nd in the NFL) this season. He also has the most points scored in the NFL since 2020 with 212.
The kicker is one of only three NFL players since 1950 to record at least 204 points in his first 23 regular season games.
Bass is the first Bills player to win AFC special teams player of the month since Brian Moorman in November 2006 and the first kicker to win the award since Steve Christie in December 1998.
