Akers Again Takes Home the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week Award

Kicker David Akers has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week, the league announced on Wednesday.

Akers converted two of his three field goal attempts and was 4-for-4 on extra points attempts, including one after completing a 14-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree on a fake field goal.

On the season, his first with the 49ers, Akers has set an NFL record with 44 field goals (on 52 attempts) and has more than doubled his previous career-high with 47 touchbacks to earn a third straight trip to the Pro Bowl.
