Kickers

Post by PurpleMustReign » Sun Oct 07, 2018 7:45 pm

What is going on with kickers this season? Mason Crosby does not miss fgs that often, and he missed three today plus an extra point. Hell Dan Bailey missed two kicks. Is there something different with them this season? Are they doing something different with the footballs?

Not sure, but the Houston kicker just missed one too.

Anyone have the league stats compared to other seasons. It does seem to be higher, just from a cursory glance.

Can't find any stats on the season, but Week 5 was certainly a stinker for kickers.

Mason Crosby of the Pack missed 4 FGs and an XP (why can't he do that against us?).

Chris Boswell of Pittsburgh missed an XP.

Caleb Sturgis of the Chargers missed an XP.

Cairo Santos of the Rams missed an XP.

Dan Bailey missed 2 FGs.

Caleb Joseph of the Browns missed an XP and a field goal at the end of regulation. Making either of those kicks would have made his ugly game-winning FB at the end of overtime unnecessary.

Matt Prager of the Lions shanked a FG into the woods on the right.

The Ravens' Justin Tucker had a FG blocked. So did Steven Hauschka of the Bills and Randy Bullock of the Bengals.

And finally, the Bills botched a FG attempt with a bad hold.

On the other end of the spectrum is Carolina's Graham Gano. I guess making a 63-yard walk-off game-winner does wonders for your hero status.
