Week 9 was pretty vanilla in terms of kicking. Nobody did anything crazy, and nobody besmirched the name of kickers. That being said, here is the Week 9 Kickers Korner.
32-Joey Slye, Washington Football Team
Welcome back Joey Slye, you shouldn’t have been cut in the first place.
31- Greg Zuerlein or Lirim Hajrullahu, Dallas Cowboys
Zuerlein may not play on Sunday, so Hajrullahu may get the nod in a return to Dallas.
30- Greg Joseph, Minnesota Vikings
29- Jason Sanders, Miami Dolphins
28- Austin Seibert, Detroit Lions
27- Ka’imi Fairbairn, Houston Texans
Fairbairn had his first week of stats in a good amount of time. I, like many, forgot about Ka’imi.
26- Matt Ammendola, New York Jets
25- Dustin Hopkins, Los Angeles Chargers
Hopkins showed against a former divisional foe that the Washington Football Team may have acted too soon to cut him.
24- Jason Myers, Seattle Seahawks
23- Jake Elliott, Philadelphia Eagles
22- Michael Badgley, Indianapolis Colts
21- Zane Gonzalez, Carolina Panthers
20- Ryan Succop, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
19- Brian Johnson, New Orleans Saints
18- Matthew Wright, Jacksonville Jaguars
After the Josh Lambo fiasco, Matthew Wright has been great for the Jaguars.
17- Robbie Gould, San Fransisco 49ers
16- Chris Boswell, Pittsburgh Steelers
15- Brandon McManus, Denver Broncos
14- Chase McLaughlin, Cleveland Browns
13- Randy Bullock, Tennessee Titans
12- Nick Folk, New England Patriots
11-Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers
Kickers Korner Top 10
10- Cairo Santos, Chicago Bears
Congrats to Cairo, who has hit 40 consecutive field goals.
9- Matt Prater, Arizona Cardinals
8- Daniel Carlson, Las Vegas Raiders
7- Younghoo Koe, Atlanta Falcons
Another game-winner last week for Younghoo. Sorry, Tolva and Garrett.
6- Evan McPherson, Cincinnati Bengals
5- Graham Gano, New York Giants
4- Matt Gay, Los Angeles Rams
3- Harrison Butker, Kansas City Chiefs
2- Tyler Bass, Buffalo Bills
1- Justin Tucker, Baltimore Ravens
Maybe we’ll get some great moments in Week 10. Last week’s kicking wasn’t great, but that’s okay. There’s still lots of game left.
