Despite being 41, Dawson has showed little signs of slowing down.

In 2015, he connected on 24 of 27 field goals. He made all three of his attempts from beyond 50 yards.

Dawson, who will be playing in his 18th season, accounted for 92 of the 49ers' NFL-low 238 points and became the first kicker to be named team MVP since Joe Nedney shared the honor in 2005.
