Crazy Kicker of the wild-card round

We didn’t plan on awarding the Crazy Kicker of the Week crown in the playoffs, but in the wild card round one kicker’s crazy day must be mentioned. Not only did Jay Feely serve his normal role as placekicker; he also had to fill in at punter after Steve Weatherford was sidelined by an irregular heartbeat. Feely got mad props for filling in – from this New York Times column to the bajillion camera shots NBC’s backup crew took of him – to the point that the response to Feely’s filling in was, well, crazy. Hence his award this week.
