Thomas Morstead along with Drew Brees are the only two remaining members of the XLIV SB Championship team. The 11 year veteran has won his first NFC Special Team POM despite consistently being one of the best punters in the league.

Morstead has averaged 48.8 yards per with 17 punts thus far this season. Eleven were downed inside the 20 for the Saints. In the week 3 victory against the Seahawks he punted 6 times for 324 yards for an average of 54 yards per. Dropped 4 inside the 20, and pinned Seattle inside the 5 twice.

Thomas Morstead pinned the Cowboys twice in the Sunday night contest inside the 20. He punted a total of 4 times and was key in limiting Dallas’ field position. Along with the outstanding defensive effort, this was key to the victory in the low scoring game.
