Crazy Kicker of Week 15

Little did we know when we started this feature how apropos the name would be. For the third time this season, we’re awarding the crazy kicker of the week award to Hunter the Punter Smith of the Redskins. The first two times, Hunter the Punter won because of a touchdown run and a touchdown pass. This time, however, a ridiculously ill-conceived fake became the craziest and most bizarre play of the year. But since we call this the Crazy Kicker award, Hunter the Punter gets the nod again. Here’s the play, in case you haven’t seen it on the endless loop on TV…
