Of course, Elliott will forever be remembered for the 61-yard game-winning field goal, but besides that, Elliot made two of three field goals on the day and also added three extra points. Elliott’s kick was special and historic, becoming the longest field goal in Eagles’ history.
This season, Elliott has made four of six field goals, giving him a 66% conversion rate. But, all of those misses have been forgiven after that 61-yard field goal.
In Philadelphia, we love the longshot, and all that Elliott embodies is that. He will forever be remembered for that kick. Elliott caps off his historic week with an NFC special teams player of the week award.
