The Punt God is among us.

Bill’s rookie punter Matt Araiza lived up to his nickname by unleashing a 82-yard kick Saturday against the Colts in Buffalo’s first preseason game.

The kick, which occurred in the dwindling seconds of the second quarter, went from close to Buffalo’s 10-yard line to the Indianapolis end zone.

The 2022 sixth round roster earned its divine reputation as a punter while playing in the state of San Diego by producing huge punts that could stretch entire football fields — a bit like Saturday’s kick.

For his point skills, Araiza won the 2021 Ray Guy Award for an average of 51.2 yards per punt.
