Bailey Named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week
Bailey scored 11 points and converted all three field-goal attempts in the Cowboys’ 23-20 overtime win over Cleveland.
He sent the game into overtime with a 32-yard field goal with 0:02 remaining in the fourth quarter and then kicked the game-winner from 38 yards with 6:07 left in overtime. He also had a 44-yard field goal in the third quarter.
In his career, Bailey has converted 51 of 58 field-goal attempts (87.9 percent) and he is the most accurate kicker in franchise history.
In his second season from Oklahoma State, this is Bailey’s second career Player of the Week Award. He was honored in Week 3 last season.
Bailey joins BILLY CUNDIFF (2002-03) as the only kickers in franchise history to be named Special Teams Player of the Week in each of his first two NFL seasons.
This is the second consecutive week a Cowboy has been honored on special teams (DWAYNE HARRIS).
It marks the first time Dallas has won Special Teams Player of the Week in consecutive weeks.
