Jags’ Lambo named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Jaguars fifth-year K Josh Lambo has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his 13-point performance in Jacksonville’s Week 7 victory at Cincinnati. The recognition is Lambo’s second of the season as he also received the award in Week 4 after kicking the game-winning FG at Denver.

 In Week 7, Lambo made all four FG attempts and his only PAT, and, through Week 7, has made 18 of 18 FG attempts and 10 of 10 PATs. Lambo’s 18 made FGs are tied with Arizona K Zane Gonzalez for the most in the NFL this season, and he joins Baltimore K Justin Tucker as the only kickers in the NFL this season with at least 15 FG attempts and a 100 pct. FG conversion rate. Since signing with the Jaguars on Oct. 17, 2017, Lambo has made 56 of 59 FGs, and his 94.9 FG conversion rate is the highest in franchise history among kickers with at least 10 FG attempts. Lambo has also made all 33 FG attempts in home games since signing with the Jaguars in 2017.

 Lambo has converted 20 consecutive FGs 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 FGs after converting 24 straight FG attempts during the 2017-18 seasons.

 Lambo is the first Jaguars kicker since Josh Scobee in 2005 (Weeks 1 & 5) to win multiple AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors in the same season.
