Cowboys kicker misses two field goals an

If the had one big problem during the first half of their opener in Tampa on Thursday night, it was definitely their kicking game. Cowboys kicker mi sed two field goals and an extra point and every one of those mi ses ended up being costly in a game the Cowboys would eventually lose 31-29.Zuerlein did hit one clutch kick, which came in the fourth quarter. With the Cowboys trailing 28-26, Dak Prescott drove his team into Tampa Bay territory before the drive ended up stalling at the  Louis Williams Jersey Buccaneers' 30-yard line. With the Cowboys facing a fourth-and-6, Mike McCarthy had two options: Go for the first down or send out Zuerlein, who went 1 of 3 on field goals in the first half.McCarthy elected to try the kick and his faith in Zuerlein paid off when his kicker drilled a 48-yarder.  The have the lead! : on NBC:  NFL (@NFL)  It was quite the redeeming kick for Zuerlein, who had an ugly first half.For Zuerlein, the trouble started in the second quarter. After the Cowboys drove down Los Angeles Clippers Jersey  to Tampa Bay's 13-yard line, McCarthy had a decision to make with his team facing fourth-and-3. At that point in the game, the Cowboys were trailing just 14-7, so McCarthy decided to send his kicker out for a 31-yard field goal attempt, a kick that's shorter than an extra point.  McCarthy probably regretted his decision almost immediately after Zuerlein got off an ugly kick that mi sed way to the left.  This attempt was SHORTER than an extra point...( )  Pick Six Podcast (@picksixpod)  To put into perspective how rare it is to mi s a kick from that range: NFL kickers hit 96.3% of their kicks from that range in 2020 (Only nine kickers mi sed a field goal of 31 yards or le s in 2020 and six of those nine aren't on an active roster heading into Week 1 of  Montrezl Harrell Jersey this year).Fortunately for the Zuerlein , the mi sed field goal actually ended up working out for Dallas because the ended up turning the ball over one play later when lost a fumble.  Five plays after the fumble, the Cowboys capitalized on the turnover when Prescott hit for a 5-yard touchdown. However, the TD celebration was short-lived because Zuerlein mi sed the extra point (It hit off the left upright Landry Shamet Jersey ) and the Cowboys were left trailing 14-13.At that point, NBC sideline reporter Michele Tafoya noted that she talked to Zuerlein before the game and that "he didn't seem that confident," which is not something you want to hear about your kicker. At the end of the half, Zuerlein also mi sed a 60-yard attempt, but considering there was only one succe sful field goal of 60 yards or more in the entire NFL last offseason, it wasn't a huge shock that Zuerlein mi sed the kick. Overall, he he went 1 of 3 on field goals in the first half and 1 of 2 on extra points.  The game against the Buccaneers was just the second game that Zuerlein played in this year, including the preseason. Due to offseason back surgery, the kicker mi sed the Cowboys' first three preseason games and ended up only playing in their preseason finale.The fact that he made a 48-yard field goal might end up being enough to save his job, but don't be surprised if the Cowboys bring in a few kickers this week. The fact of that matter is that Zuerlein left four easy points on the board -- with his mi sed 31-yarder and the mi  Rodney McGruder Jersey sed extra point -- and in a game that was decided by two points, he'll probably be kicking himself for his performance.
