49ers P Andy Lee Named NFC Special Teams Player Of The Week For Week 15

After his dominating performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers' special teams on Monday night, San Francisco 49ers punter Andy Lee earned the honor of NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for week 15 of the NFL season. 

Lee was about as saucy as a punter could get on Monday, dropping four of his six punts inside the Steelers' 15-yard line, while averaging a modest 49.2 net yards per punt, a large reason why the 49ers' defense dominated Pittsburgh by the tune of 20-3.

Here are the starting field positions for Lee's punts: 5-yard line, 16-, 10-, 8-, 14- and 12-yard lines; an average start just shy of the 11-yard line. He also had boots of 57 and 62 yard on the evening. That's consistent and deadly, a great mix for the Pro-Bowl punter. 

Lee currently leads the NFL with a 44.1-yard net average and has 26 punts inside the 20-yard line this year. It is also his first ever Player of the Week Award, and the first 49ers punter ever to win the award as well. Congrats Andy; very much deserved!
