    Kluwe wins NFC special teams player of the month

    KLUWE EARNS NFC SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE MONTH HONORS FOR SEPTEMBER

    Minnesota Vikings' P Chris Kluwe has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Month for September. He becomes the first rookie in franchise history to earn NFC Player of the Month honors in any category.

    Kluwe leads the NFL with a 49.9 gross punting average, topping Tampa Bay's Josh Bidwell and Jacksonville's Chris Hanson by over 3.0 yards. His 42.3 net avg. is 3rd in the NFL. Six of Kluwe's 12 punts on the season have been 50+ yards.

    Kluwe had one of the top punting performances in team history in his NFL debut vs. Tampa Bay (9/11) with a 54.3 punting average and a 42.5 net average. Kluwe's 54.3 avg. in the game ranks 2nd-best in team history (minimum 4 punts) and is the best showing ever by a rookie.

    Kluwe had a 46.7 avg. at Cincinnati (9/18) with two punts inside the 20, and followed that game up with a 48.4 avg. vs. New Orleans (9/25) with two more punts inside the 20.

    Kluwe is the first Viking to earn Special Teams Player of the Month honors since P Mitch Berger won the award in December of 2000.



    KLUWE'S SEPTEMBER TOTALS (3 GAMES)
    12 punts, 599 yards, 49.9 avg., 42.3 net, 4 inside 20, 62 long, 2 touchbacks



    I'm very happy with the pickup of Kluwe, finally our kicking game is not the laughing stock of the league
