Megahand strikes again

When Alex ‘Megahand’ Carrington got his arm on Miami K Nate Kaeding’s 46-yard attempt Sunday to keep the game scoreless in the first quarter it was the fourth blocked field goal of his career and third this season. It put him in some elite company.

Carrington’s third blocked field goal were the most in a season since Bruce Smith had three in 1996. His blocks this season came against Arizona, Houston and Miami. He also had a blocked extra point against Seattle.

The four blocked kicks are the most by a Bills player in one season, since such records have been kept (1988).

With five blocked kicks in his career (3 FGs, 2 PATs) Carrington has the most in a Bills career since Phil Hansen, who blocked four field goals and 1 PAT.
