This season, Hanson has converted ten PAT’s and is 16-for-17 in field goal attempts.
An NFC West clash kicks off Week 7 of the NFL season when the Seattle Seahawks head south to take on the San Francisco 49ers on Tonight.
The Seahawks and 49ers, along with the Arizona Cardinals, are tied atop the division at 4-2, with Seattle looking to build off a 24-23 triumph over the New England Patriots.
The 49ers, on the other hand, are attempting to rebound from their worst loss in the Jim Harbaugh era after taking a 26-3 thumping at the hands of the defending champion New York Giants on Sunday.
