FRISCO, Texas – One day after winning the NFC weekly honor for special teams, Brandon Aubrey has won another award. This time, it's for the month of October.
Aubrey was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Month on Thursday for his stellar performances in the Cowboys' four games in October.
Aubrey just recently made two more field goals, including a 58-yarder, in last Sunday's win over the Rams. That extended his streak to 18 straight field goals, tying an NFL record for the most makes to begin a career. Aubrey can pass Travis Coons (18 in 2015) for the NFL record all by himself this weekend against the Eagles with another made field goal.
This month, Aubrey went 3-for-3 against the Patriots on Oct. 1, then 1-for-1 against the 49ers on Oct. 8. After the bye week, he was 2-for-2 against the Chargers, including the go-ahead field goal in the fourth quarter and then made both field goals against the Rams.
Aubrey has not only made all 18 of his field goals, but 17 straight extra points after missing his first attempt back in Week 1. He's third in the NFL in scoring with 71 points and he leads the NFL in touchbacks on his kickoffs with 43.
Aubrey becomes the first Cowboys player in 24 years to win this monthly award and fourth in team history, joining Jason Tucker (1999), Richie Cunningham (1997) and Chris Boniol (1996).
Aubrey is the second Cowboys player this year to win a monthly award as Micah Parsons was named NFC Defensive Player of the Month for September.
