Others might want to kick them off the roster after this weekend.With the rare exceptions of Indianapolis’ Adam Vinatieri and Baltimore’s Justin Tucker Josh Oliver Jersey , there aren’t any placekickers whose place in Canton, Ohio, is a topic of discussion. Even Vinatieri and Tucker missed kicks in Week 5.For every hero with his soccer-style boots, there are flops. Graham Gano nails a career-best 63-yarder to lift Carolina past the Giants — tied for second-longest field goal in NFL history — and Greg Joseph sends a flutterball through the uprights to give Cleveland a 12-10 win over Baltimore. Meanwhile, Mason Crosby has the worst Sunday of his 12-year career with four botched field goals and a missed extra point in a 31-23 loss at Detroit.Want more? Maybe not, but here goes:—Chris Boswell missed the extra point after the Steelers‘ first touchdown, the third he’s missed this season. Boswell missed three in his previous three seasons with Pittsburgh.—Caleb Sturgis‘ PAT attempt after one Chargers touchdown bounced off the upright for his fourth miss of the season and third in the past two games. The sixth-year kicker has equaled the amount he had over three seasons in Philadelphia from 2015-17.“The extra point did bother me a little bit, but we’ll figure out what happened there,” Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said. “He’s been kicking with a lot of confidence http://www.jaguarscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-quincy-williams-ii-jersey , so I’m not concerned about it.”—The Browns‘ Joseph clanked an extra point off the right upright, the third extra point missed by Cleveland this season. The rookie then pulled a 55-yard field goal left for the win with 5 seconds left in regulation before connecting in OT.—Tucker, the most accurate kicker in NFL history, had a 48-yard field goal attempt blocked by Cleveland rookie Denzel Ward on the final play of the first half. He made three kicks, however, proving he’s still the league’s most reliable.—Detroit’s Matt Prater missed a 55-yard field goal, badly, sending the football way right. But the strong-legged Prater is one of the best long-range kickers around and holds the record with a 64-yarder for Denver in 2013.—Cincinnati kicker Randy Bullock had a 37-yard field goal try blocked by Vincent Taylor of Miami in the second quarter. The Bengals still rallied from a 17-0 hole to win.—Cairo Santos of the Rams had a chance to tie the score at 31 in Seattle but missed a fourth-quarter extra point. He got a chance to redeem himself and did on a 39-yard field goal for the winning points.—This one is not kicker Stephen Hauschka‘s fault, and he was being celebrated later with a 46-yard field goal to lift Buffalo past Tennessee. But it was an example of the weird day kicking teams were having.The Bills botched a field goal late in the first half — either it was a blown fake or an issue getting the ball down for the kick. Holder Corey Bojorquez stood up after taking the snap and tried a short pass back to Hauschka under pressure from Brynden Trawick of the Titans.—Not to ignore the punters Ryquell Armstead Jersey , Atlanta’s Matt Bosher had a kick blocked late in the third quarter when Pittsburgh’s Roosevelt Nix bulldozed in.Clearly, the most forgettable performance came from Crosby, who was crushed by it.“I don’t get this much attention unless it’s really bad or extremely good,” he said. “This one is unfortunately really bad. I’m going to have to really look at this one and this one hurts a bunch. I left a lot of points on the field for this team.“I look back and I’m thinking, in my childhood, in high school, this is definitely one of the worst ones and I’m bummed about that.”What really bums out fans is when coaches play for the field goal. It’s far worse in college, where the dependability of placekickers is shakier than Crosby was Sunday indoors at Detroit.But it infiltrates the NFL, too. And when the kickers flop consistently http://www.jaguarscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-gardner-minshew-ii-jersey , they lose their jobs.And like Hauschka and Santos and Sturgis and Bullock, they somehow pop up elsewhere. Until they start missing again.___ RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Outside of middle linebacker Bobby Wagner, no one on the Seattle Seahawks defense has proven more valuable this season than safety Bradley McDougald.And just in time for a visit from the leading passer in the NFL, the Seahawks aren’t sure if McDougald will be able to play Sunday against Kansas City.McDougald’s knee injury is one of several that could change Seattle’s lineup for a Week 16 matchup where a victory and some help from others could clinch an NFC wild-card berth for the Seahawks.McDougald has been dealing with a patellar tendon injury that flared up during the first half last week against San Francisco and forced him to become a spectator for the vast majority of the loss to the 49ers. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said McDougald is away from the team for a few days getting additional treatment on his knee and is expected back by the end of the week.But when asked if he thought McDougald would be able to play against Patrick Mahomes and the NFL’s top passing offense, Carroll could only say, “possibly.” If McDougald can’t play against the Chiefs it would be second-year safety Delano Hill stepping in. Hill played 52 snaps last week against San Francisco.Seattle is equally unsettled at right guard and potentially with its depth in the backfield.The Seahawks placed guard Jordan Simmons on injured reserve Tuesday due to a knee injury suffered in the loss to San Francisco and it’s uncertain whether D.J. Fluker’s injured hamstring will be healthy enough for him to return this week.The injuries have left Seattle possibly needing a major shuffle on an offensive line that has helped create the top rushing offense in the NFL.Ethan Pocic struggled last week when he stepped in for Simmons. Seattle has used George Fant as an extra offensive lineman for significant snaps throughout the season and his ability to play tackle could allow some shuffling among the starters in the short-term until Fluker can return.“Let’s wait and see on that one. We’ll wait and see how this goes,” Carroll said. “Jordan, he needs likely to get some work done on his knee to get him back so he’s out. There are some decisions that we’re making. Let’s see how the week goes.”Seattle signed running back Bo Scarbrough off the Jacksonville practice squad to take Simmons’ roster spot and that’s partly due to depth concerns at running back. Seattle played last week without rookie first-round pick Rashaad Penny due to a knee injury and Carroll said there was enough wear on starter Chris Carson and backup Mike Davis that they needed the extra depth in case Penny isn’t back this week.“It’s uncertain if he can get back. We don’t know that Marquise Brown Jersey ,” Carroll said. “He’s really determined to try and make it back and Friday is the day he can try to go for it and show that he can run and go for it.”Amid all the injury news, the Seahawks believe veteran linebacker K.J. Wright will be back after missing the past five games. Wright hasn’t played since Week 10 after aggravating a knee problem that first popped up in the preseason and required surgery.Wright said when he returned in Week 8 against Detroit that he took on too much and that eventually led to a setback. When he returns this time, he said he’s going to be smarter about his play count and ramp up toward being ready for a full load when the postseason arrives — assuming Seattle gets there.“We’re going to be smarter this time. We’ve got a good game plan going,” Wright said. “Ease it in these last two games, make the playoffs and kick it off from there.”
