TheCastrol EDGE Clutch Performer of the Week** is the best performer or performance of the week that represents strength in key moments.
Succop, who played for the Chiefs from 2009-2013, became the first kicker in NFL history to defeat his former team by converting a game-winning, come-from-behind field goal of 50 or more yards as time expired. It marked the Titans' first game-winning field goal since Rob Bironas made a 40-yarder against Pittsburgh on Oct. 11, 2012. Succop's field goal tied for the second-longest game-winner in franchise history, equaling Bironas' 53-yard effort at Houston on Nov. 23, 2009 and behind only Bironas' 60-yarder against Indianapolis on Dec. 3, 2006. The 53-yarder at Kansas City gave Succop six career game-winning field goals, two of which have come in the fourth quarter and four of which have occurred in overtime.
Fans may vote for one of these five performers on www.nfl.com/castrol-edge through Friday at 3 PM ET to determine the CASTROL EDGE CLUTCH PERFORMER OF THE WEEK. The winner will be announced Friday on NFL Total Access on NFL Network and then posted on NFL.com.
