The Punt God has arrived in Buffalo.
The Bills have a new sensation, although this time it is a special teams guy. Former San Diego State star Matt Araiza was selected by Buffalo in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, and the proclaimed Punt God is already dropping jaws at the end of May.
On Tuesday, Araiza dropped an unbelievable punt at practice.

Yes, this is a real punt and nobody could believe it happened.
Former NFL punter Pat McAfee raved about the punt by Matt Araiza, and the Bills rookie went viral again
Pat McAfee was one person to show his approval of Araiza’s massive bout at practice — and that is some good company.

So not only do we have potentially the best offense in the NFL, but we also have a punter with the potential to pin our opponents deep from any spot on the field? 😃

Araiza is going to hit a jumbotron or some rafters when the Bills play in a dome

Araiza did this plenty during his time at San Diego State and he also performed well as the placekicker. However, he is named the Punt God for a reason — and the reason is because of plays such as the one above.
Get ready Bills fans, Araiza is set to do this often — or not so often, depending on how good the Bills are during the 2022 campaign.
