Has our punting record been vital in our success this season?

The AJC is reporting that the falcons are set to annihilate a special teams punting record set by the Buffalo Bills in 1991.

 

"Koenen has punted 48 times this season and just 15 have been returned for only 26 yards, 28 yards under the record. Koenen’s punts have led to 20 fair catches, most of which were covered by Antoine Harris, who suffered a groin injury and was placed on injury reserved Tuesday."

 

The record is 53 yards.

 

"The Falcons punt coverage unit will be tested on Sunday by Tampa Bay’s Clifton Smith. He was the top punt returner coming out of college last season with a 17.1 career average at Fresno State."

I think this has been a vital part of the reason we have stopped point scoring well this year despite giving up a lot of yards. I think special teams can be very underrated, especially defensive special teams.

Do you think we will miss Antoine Harris this weekend?
