Kickers get the glory, too.
Or at least the hardware.
Dawson nailed three of four field goal attempts in the 49ers win over the Cardinals. His season-long 56-yarder tied the score, and his game-winning 40-yarder came with two seconds left on the clock.
Dawson hooked his second attempt of the game, a 24-yarder, to snap his franchise record streak of 27 consecutive makes.
He finished his first year in San Francisco with the second most points (140) and field goals (32-of-36) in the team's history.
Previously receiving the conference's honor for his Week 14 effort, when he connected on three three-point tries at Tampa Bay, Dawson should be ready to kick in Green Bay, during a first-round playoff game against the Packers. Although he has never played in the postseason, he kicked for 14 seasons in Cleveland.
