Week Twelve in Review

Week Twelve included a rare blocked extra point last night that was returned for a two-point conversion by the Seahawks against Washington. It was only the second blocked extra point this season and first to be returned for a score.

While there were no major snapping issues on the field, two snappers were placed on the COVID list. Charley Hughlett (Browns) and Trent Sieg (Raiders) were added to the list yesterday. Since the Browns are on a bye, Hughlett could return in Week Fourteen, while the Raiders will need to add a snapper, at least temporarily, this week. One option is veteran Carson Tinker, who was cut by the Bucs after Zach Triner returned last week.

Pro Bowl voting is underway and the leading vote getter in the AFC among snappers is Joe Cardona of the Patriots with 34,033 while Cameron Cheeseman of Washington leads the NFC with 27,778 votes as of November 23, 2021.

James Winchester of the Chiefs, who would have been an unrestricted free agent this off-season, signed a new two-year extension this week to stay in Kansas City.

Last night, Cal Adomitis (Pitt), Damon Johnson (USC) and Alex Ward (UCF) were announced as the three finalists for the third annual Patrick Mannelly Award given to the best senior FBS long snapper. The winner will be announced December 11, 2021 at a live ceremony outside of Chicago, Illinois.

Three snappers recorded tackles in punt coverage this week, with Morgan Cox (Titans) making a solo tackle and client Patrick Scales (Bears) and Scott Daly (Lions) each having assisted tackles.
