KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) — The Kansas City Chiefs did not lose a game in November sparking a 4-game win streak they hope to take into the rest of the season.

Head coach Andy Reid preaches the importance of all three phases of the game; Offense, defense and special teams.

Punter Tommy Townsend’s consistency in pinning opponents near their own end zone have earned him AFC Special Teams Player of the Month of November.

The second-year punter out of Florida averaged 54.9 yards per punt in November and 6 of his 10 punts landed inside the opposing 20-yard line.

Townsend also completed a pass on a fake punt against the Las Vegas Raiders to keep a drive alive in the fourth quarter that led to a field goal.

The former Gator earned AFC Special Teams Player of the Week in Week 9 for his performance against the Green Bay Packers.
