Former Clemson standout Chandler Cantanzaro was named the NFC special teams player of the week with his performance this past Saturday against Washington. He made all three of his field goal attempts (33, 49, 37) and his three extra points.

For the season, he is a perfect 14-14 on field goals for Arizona. He is one field goal away from the tying the all-time NFL rookie record of 15 in a row.

He told the Arizona media recently that he is not worried about stats or his perfect field goal streak.

"I'm not really thinking about that," Catanzaro said. "I'm just focused on doing my thing, especially now being a rookie and just trying to solidify myself in the league. I'm just really focused on what I'm doing. I'm not a huge stats guy."

Catanzaro signed a free agent contract with the Cardinals after the 2014 NFL draft. He set Clemson records for PATs made, field goals of 40+ yards (24) and consecutive field goals (20). His career totals were 67 out of 82 field goals and 203 out of 207 extra point attempts.
