Jacksonville Jaguars fifth-year kicker Josh Lambo has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his 13-point performance in the team’s Week 7 victory against the Cincinnati Bengals. The recognition is Lambo’s second of the season as he also received the award in Week 4 after kicking the game-winning field goal at Denver.
On Sunday, Lambo made all four field goal attempts and his only point after try, and, through Week 7, has made 18 of 18 field goal attempts and 10 of 10 point after tries. Lambo’s 18 made field goals are tied with Arizona Cardinals kicker Zane Gonzalez for the most in the NFL this season, and he joins Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker as the only kickers in the NFL this season with at least 15 FG attempts and a 100 percent field goal conversion rate.
Since signing with the Jaguars on October 17, 2017, Lambo has made 56 of 59 field goals, and his 94.9% field goal conversion rate is the highest in franchise history among kickers with at least 10 field goal attempts. Lambo has also made all 33 field goal attempts in home games since signing with the Jaguars in 2017.
Lambo has converted 20 consecutive field goals dating back to 2018, the second-longest streak in franchise history and the longest active streak in the NFL. He already owns the Jaguars’ record for consecutive made field goal after converting 24 straight FG attempts during the 2017-18 seasons.
Lambo is the first Jaguars kicker since Josh Scobee in 2005 (Weeks 1 and 5) to win multiple AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors in the same season.
