Kicker: Advantage, New Orleans Saints
Wil Lutz has been lights out for the New Orleans Saints this season and has been one of the most reliable kickers in the league. While he has had some hiccups along the way, for the most part, Lutz has been all you could want in a kicker.
Lutz has made 87.1 percent of his field goals with a long of 58 and has not missed an attempt within 40 yards. Robbie Gould has made just 63.6 percent of his field goals with a long of 47.
Punter: Advantage, New Orleans Saints
It sounds weird to get excited over a punter but man is Thomas Morstead good. By all accounts, Morstead has been the best punter in the league this season and has been a huge reason why the Saints’ defense has excelled as he often pins teams back.
Morstead is tied for sixth in the league with 24 punts within the 20-yard line but is 22nd in attempts with just 46. Mitch Wishnowsky is not bad either, pinning opponents within the 20-yard line 17 times in 38 tries.
Returner: Advantage, New Orleans Saints
The Saints take the clean sweep in the special teams’ department as Deonte Harris has overcome his rookie hiccups and become the returner that the Saints envisioned him to be. Harris ranks 11th in the league in average yards per kickoff return, fourth in average yards per punt return and has a punt return touchdown.
