In Week 2 of the 2020 NFL Season, Kohl's Kicking athlete Harrison Butker has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week where he went 3-of-3 on field goals with 2 coming from 58 yards out-- winning the game.
In a come-from-behind game, Butker connected on an astounding 58-yard field goal in the 3rd quarter to cut the lead to 8 points. After the end of regulation he lined up for a 30-yard field goal to send the game into overtime.
In overtime, the Chiefs offense set Butker up for a 53-yard field goal that would have won the game. Butker knocked it through, but a flag on the play denied the points and pushed the Chiefs back 5 yards, where they would attempt the field goal again. Once again, Butker put the 58-yarder through the posts, only to be denied due to a Chargers timeout.
On a third attempt following the time out, the former Super Bowl Champion kicker converted a back-to-back 58-yard field goal that would give the Chiefs the win against the Chargers.
