    Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week following his three-field goal performance against the Redskins Sunday, and quarterback Philip Rivers earned AFC Offensive Player of the Month honors after another perfect December.

    A week after earning Pro Bowl honors for the second time in their careers, quarterback Philip Rivers[​IMG] and Nate Kaeding[​IMG] received another honor from the NFL. Kaeding was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his three-field goal effort in Week 17 against the Redskins, and Rivers was recognized as AFC Offensive Player of the Month after leading the Chargers to a perfect finish to the season.
    Kaeding’s three-for-three effort against Washington allowed him to finish the season with 32 successful field goals in 35 attempts for a new franchise single-season field goal percentage record of .914. Kaeding hit a 24-yarder in the season finale in addition to kicks of 45 and 47 yards. His first kick of the day allowed him to extend his NFL-record streak of field goals 40-yards-or-less to 69. Kaeding also finished the season with 146 points, a new franchise kick-scoring record. He has made a personal-best 20 field goals in a row.
    Rivers maintained his perfect record as a starter in the month of December (18-0) while leading the Chargers to a perfect final month of the season. In the team’s final five games, Rivers completed 67.9 percent of his passes and led the NFL with an average of 9.61 yards per attempt in the final month. That number was .57 yards better than any other quarterback. His 111.5 passer rating over the final month also led the NFL, while his nine touchdowns were tied for the second most during that period
