December is a stressful month for all NFL players, but it can be especially tough on kickers, who can determine a team’s playoff fate with one field-goal attempt. But that doesn’t mean they can’t get into the holiday spirit, so we asked some NFL kickers to share with us their favorite Christmas tunes. Philadelphia Eagles kicker David Akers went the traditional route with Oh Holy Night.
“Our pastor’s wife would sing it at Midnight Mass when I was growing up,” said Akers, “and now I really like theMartina McBride version.”
Some other choices:
David Buehler, Dallas Cowboys: Sleigh Ride
Neil Rackers, Houston Texans: Grandma got run over by a Reindeer
Adam Vinatieri, Indianapolis Colts: White Christmas by Bing Crosby
Rian Lindell, Buffalo Bills: Let it snow by Dean Martin
