Dan Bailey’s leg is like the lamp in A Christmas Story

Minnesota Vikings kicker Dan Bailey has won the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week award for the...ho hum...third time this year. He nailed all four field goal attempts in the Vikings 39-10 romp over the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, hitting from 26, 44, 38, and 27 yards, and converted three of four extra points, for a season high 15 points.

Overall, he’s won this award six times in his career, and it’s the sixth NFC Player of the Week award the Vikings have won as a team this season. In addition to Bailey’s three, Anthony Harris and Danielle Hunter have each won a Defensive Player award, and Dalvin Cook an Offensive Player award.

Since Mike Zimmer was named head coach in 2014, 17 different Vikings players have won a Player of the Week award, for a total of 23 times. This year marks the most Player of the Week awards handed out to the Vikings in the Mike Zimmer era.

Congratulations to Dan Bailey, and may the soft glow of electric sex continue to emanate from his leg for the rest of the year.
