NFL Kickers Set Single-Week Record for Most Missed Extra Points

NFL kickers hit an all-time low Sunday, setting a record for the most missed extra points in a single week since the 1970 merger.

Per ESPN Stats & Info, there were 11 missed extra points between the early games and the opening portion of the late-afternoon contests. A fourth-quarter miss in the Sunday night game by Washington Redskins kicker Dustin Hopkins raised the total to 12. The previous high was 10, set in 1985.

Though it’s difficult to compare extra points throughout history—attempts start with a snap from the 15-yard line instead of the 2-yard line following a 2015 rule change—such struggles would be highlighted under nearly any circumstances.

Mike Nugent might have had the worst day among kickers, missing his only two extra-point attempts. As a result, the Cincinnati Bengals needed a touchdown to win on their final drive instead of a field goal and lost 16-12 to the Buffalo Bills.

Blair Walsh was released by the Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday after he missed four extra points this season, including one each in Weeks 9 and 10.

On Sunday, Robbie Gould also missed two extra points for the New York Giants, and previously steady performers like Stephen Gostkowski and Steven Hauschka failed to convert on points after as well.

Additionally, Adam Vinatieri missed his first field goal in 45 attempts, ending an NFL-record streak and summing up an awful day for kickers.
