Punt God Odds For Offensive Rookie of the Year Revealed

The Punt God is already living up to his nickname.

Matt Araiza is entering the NFL this year with more hype than any punter in recent league history. With the first kick of his career, Araiza showed why his nickname is legit. With less than a minute left to play in the first half, the Bills were facing a fourth-and-4 from their own 18-yard line, so they sent out Matt Araiza for his first punt of the night. The rookie responded by crushing an 82-yard punt that traveled more than 75 yards in the air.

Not only did the Punt God lead the nation in punting average with an FBS-record 51.4 yards per punt last season, but he also had six punts of at least 70 yards in 2021, which was easily the most in the country. There were only six punts of 70 or more yards in the entire NFL last season. Araiza also boomed an 86-yard punt in 2021, which was the longest in college football.

If you’re wondering if a kicker has ever won Rookie of the Year, it’s happened. Jason Hanson is the only kicker to ever be named Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Pro Football Writers Association.

But there has never been a Punter to win the award. If anyone could do it, it’s gotta be the Punt God!
