Dustin Hopkins named NFC Special Teams Player of the Month
Hopkins has had a lot of opportunities to make his mark known this season. The Redskins are 3-14 in the red zone this year. While that may suck for the team it gives Hopkins field goal chances. He is 11-11 on field goals and 5-5 on extra points. He was a huge reason why the Redskins were able to beat the Giants in week 3. Hopkins also is succeeding on kickoffs with 15 touchbacks which is 2nd in the league. Hopkins is the first Redskins player in history to receive the NFC special team’s player of the month award.
