CHARLOTTE – Graham Gano has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Month for October.
Gano began the month against the Giants with a 63-yard field goal on the game's final play, the longest game-winner in NFL history. He ended the month with an active streak of 28 consecutive field goals made, the longest current streak in the NFL.
This is the second time Gano has won the honor in his career, previously winning it in November of 2015. Gano, who went 8-for-8 on field goals in October, has now gone more than a calendar year without missing a field goal. A first-time Pro Bowler in 2017, when he made 29 of 30 field goals, Gano's last miss came on October 8 of last year at Detroit.
Gano has gone more than two calendar years without missing a field goal at home. He's made 39 consecutive at Bank of America Stadium, last missing the mark on Oct. 10, 2016, against the Buccaneers.
