The Los Angeles Chargers won their first playoff game since 2013 and they did so thanks to Michael Badgley’s franchise-record five field goals. Those field goals included the second longest playoff field goal in franchise history, a 53-yarder that extended the Bolts’ early lead. That five-for-five (well, technically 5 of 6, but the miss was actually a block) stat line and the fact that we never worried about any of them is why he has earned the nickname Money Badger.

It was a truly impressive showing from the Chargers kicker in what has been a very impressive first season with the franchise.
Our friends over at BreakingT have created a t-shirt to celebrate the young kicker’s continued success. And you can get one right here.
