NFL kickers missed out on like never ever previously on Sunday, setting a record with 11 stopped working additional point efforts.

Kickers missed out on left, right, had actually kicks obstructed and struck the uprights. Kickers missed out on in the wind and inside your home. With a number of video games left, kickers currently had the most misses out on in one week considering that the NFL merger.

The NFL moved extra-point efforts back prior to last season due to the fact that the kicks had actually ended up being regular, and specialists nearly never ever missed out on. The 18-yard effort ended up being a 35-yarder. In Week 13 of last season, kickers missed out on 8. That mark was eclipsed by mid-afternoon Sunday.

Cincinnatis Mike Nugent and Robbie Gould of the New York Giants each missed out on 2 extra-point efforts. Chicagos Connor Barth, Minnesotas Kai Forbath, Jacksonvilles Jason Myers, Clevelands Cody Parkey and New Englands Stephen Gostkowski each missed out on one. Seattles Steven Hauschka and Detroits Matt Prater had actually kicks obstructed.

Barth and Gould were beginning gusty winds in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Forbath, Myers and Prater all missed out on in spite of being inside.

It was much windier than it generally is, Giants long snapper Zak DeOssie stated. It was a cross-wind from our bench to theirs, then it changed towards completion of the video game diagonal from our tunnel to the opposite tunnel.

Forbath had actually simply changed the inefficient Blair Walsh as Minnesotas kicker today.

In the early-afternoon video games, Nugents misses out on perhaps had the greatest effect. The Bengals lost 16-12 to the Buffalo Bills and owned all the method to Buffalos 27-yard line in the closing seconds. The Bengals might have tried a game-winning field objective at the end of the video game rather than unsuccessfully attempting to score a goal if Nugent hadnt missed out on those 2 extra-point efforts.
