Matt Prater has been clutch for the Lions – and he is getting the recognition he deserves.
Last Sunday in the Lions win over the New Orleans Saints, Prater was perfect for the second game in a row, hitting 5/5 Attempts, including a long of 52 yards. This is his third time winning the honor in four games. Sam Martin and Matt Prater are now tied for the second most Special Teams weekly awards in Lions team history and Prater joins Barry Sanders as the only Lions players to earn 3 conference weekly awards in the same season.
Matt Prater has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week (again).
