    There was a time when NFL coaches only trusted their placekickers if all other options were exhausted. From there, things progressed to relying on the soccer-style booters from, say, 50 yards in. Now? After what we witnessed Sunday, Matt Prater’s record 64-yard field goal is endangered. And Prater is one of those threatening it. Week 10 has seen 11 field goals of at least 50 yards, tied with Week 13 of the 2012 season for the most in a single week in an NFL history. That includes Seattle’s Jason Myers knocking through a 61-yarder to end the half at the Los Angeles Rams. There have been 71 field goals of at least 50 yards this season, surpassing the 2017 season (67) for the most through Week 10. In all, there have been 102 attempts, also a record, from 50 or beyond, and the 69.6% success rate is third best to 71.3 in 2017 and 70.2 in 2011. And get this: There were four weeks with 10 50-yard or longer field goals in the past, including last week, meaning it...

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Stephen Gostkowski is the all-time leader in points scored by a New England Patriots, and it’s not particularly close. Gostkowski scored 617 more points than the second-placed Adam Vinatieri, successfully booted 111 more field goals than Vinatieri, and kicked 286 more PATs than Vinatieri. Both kickers won three Super Bowls in New England, but Gostkowski successfully kicked 13 more field goals and 49 more PATs in the postseason. Despite that prolific Patriots career, Gostkowski’s time in Foxboro came to a very unceremonious ending. After a hip injury helped cause him to miss four PATs and a field goal last season, Gostkowski was placed on IR. After the season, he was released, ending his 14-year run with the Patriots. After that, the Patriots drafted kicker Justin Rohrwasser out of Marshall in the fifth round of the draft. Thus far in his NFL career, he’s had a tattoo controversy and a bad training camp, leading to his release at the end of the summer. (Worth noting: Rookie Rodrigo Blankenship, who was expected to be drafted...
    DENVER — New kicker Stephen Gostkowski avoided a disastrous debut with the Tennessee Titans in the nick of time. The Titans escaped Denver with a 16-14 victory Monday night on Gostkowski’s 25-yard field goal with 17 seconds left after he’d missed four kicks, one in each quarter. Gostkowski missed three field goals: wide left, wide right and a block, and he missed an extra point. Gostkowski never missed three field goals in a game during his 14 seasons in New England, where he won three Super Bowl rings, made four Pro Bowls and left this offseason as the Patriots’ all-time leading scorer. On Thursday he joined the Titans, who had the worst field goal unit in the NFL last year when their first four kickers combined to connect on only 44.4 percent of field goals (8 for 18). Although the final result was to his liking, surely his debut wasn’t. The last Titans/Oilers kicker to miss three field goals and an extra point in a game was Skip Butler against the Jets in the 1977 season opener. And...
    San Francisco 49ers Kicker Robbie Gould believes wind will affect kicks with no fans in stands. Kickers are people too. Even they have to adjust to a stadium without fans present in the COVID-19 era. According to Pro Football Talk’s Darin Gantt, Robbie Gould said on NFL Network that having no fans in the stands will change the way the wind blows in stadiums. That effect on a kicker could go either way. The 15-year veteran from Penn State signed a four-year, $19 million deal back in July. He was acquired in free agency in 2017. He is the Chicago Bears franchise leader in total scoring (1,207 points), made field goals (276), made field goals of 50-or-more yards (23) and field goal percentage (85.4). A kicker needs to be clutch in the postseason and that’s what Robbie Gould has been. In ten career postseason games, has converted all 15 of his field goals and all 29 of his point-after attempts.Robbie Gould has a good point about fans affecting the kicking game.He went on to say that more film may have to...
