Giants kicker Josh Brown was wide left on a 44 yard attempt at the end of the first half during New York's 31-7 loss to Kansas City.
"[It] just didn’t go where I wanted it to go. For me, it’s very frustrating. It’s not what I expected out of me and it’s not what the team expected out of me. That is very frustrating.”Browns kicker Billy Cundiff missed a pair of kicks in the second quarter, going wide left on a 37 yard attempt and going wide right on a 49 yard attempt at the end of the half. The latter may have been tipped and followed a successful kick negated by the ever popular icing timeout. Cundiff did connect from 51 yards in the third quarter and Cleveland won the game 17-6 over Cincinnati.
"The first miss had nothing to do with my leg. I consider that a mental mistake. I got rushed and pushed it a little bit left. Statistically I'm 1-for-3, but the way I view it is I'm 3-for-4."Vikings kicker Blair Walsh was wide left on a 44 yard attempt in the latter stages of the fourth quarter during Minneosta's 34-27 win over Pittsburgh.
“I just pulled it a little bit. I was worried about pushing it down the right hash and instead overcompensated. It’s something I have to work on.”Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey was wide left on a 56 yard attempt during the second quarter of Dallas' 30-21 loss to San Diego.
“It’s one of those deals where all three of us need to be perfect, especially from that distance. I didn’t feel like the operation was like I wanted it. Obviously the kick didn’t go through.... We’ve been working on that in practice. I feel like some of the work I did in the offseason kind of carried over this season as far as leg strength goes. I was confident and I’m sure Rich [Bisaccia] and Jason [Garrett] were confident. Just unfortunate we weren’t able to put points on the board.”
