For the second time since Week Four, Phil Dawson missed a kick last week.

But the 49ers kicker also hit at the right time, with a game-winning 40-yarder pushing his team to the playoffs.

So for the second time this month, Dawson was named NFC special teams player of the week, after also winning the award in Week 14.


Dawson has hit 32-of-36 field goal attempts and all 42 of his extra points for the 49ers this year.

That gives them much more confidence going into the postseason than a year ago, when they were bringing in competition for David Akers because of his struggles.
