Gramatica Named Special Teams Player Of The Week

October 30 – Tampa Bay kicker Martin Gramatica received the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week award Wednesday for his performance against Carolina last Sunday. Gramatica accounted for all 12 of the Buccaneers' points against the Panthers by drilling all four of his field goal attempts, including two in the final minutes of the game. The award is Gramatica's fourth of his career.

The National Football League announced Wednesday that Tampa Bay kicker Martin Gramatica was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his clutch performance during the Buccaneers' 12-9 win over Carolina last Sunday.

"The important thing is that we won," Gramatica said of his award Wednesday. "I'll probably see that and get excited about that when I'm done playing, but right now we're winning and that's all that matters."

Gramatica scored all 12 of Tampa Bay's points by drilling all four of his field goal attempts, including three in the fourth quarter and two with less than two minutes remaining in the game.

Gramatica's field goals were good from 32, 47, 52 and 53 yards out.

The fourth-year kicker out of Kansas State has made 15-of-20 field goal attempts this season, including 3-of-4 from 50 or more yards.

This marks the fourth time in his career that Gramatica has received the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week award.
