Crazy Kicker of Week 1

Week 1 was full of kicker craziness. In most weeks, Titans PK Rob Bironas attempting a 66-yard kick would win this award. And in almost every week, Chargers P Mike Scifres taking over for an injured Nate Kaeding and scoring six points on three extra points and a 40-yard field goal would be a lock. (UPDATE: And then Sebastian Janikowski tying the league record with a 63-yard field goal against Denver!) But not in Week One.

The award goes to Ravens P Sam Koch, who called an audible at the line on an extra point attempt and ran it in for a two-point conversion. That surprise fake is even crazier when you consider that the Ravens led 27-7 early in the third quarter when Koch pulled off the play. Koch said the play wasn’t designed to insult the Steelers, Baltimore’s biggest rival. Instead, they gave him a look that he had been waiting to see for two years. That led to a Balitmore Sun headline that read “Koch denies that two-point conversion was a sign of disrespect.” Shenanigans plus controversy equals the height of craziness, and that makes Koch the crazy kicker of the week.

Watch the play here.
