We survived the bye-mageddon. Some kickers will be different on this Kickers Korner, and others are familiar to you. Last week was the first time in a couple weeks I didn’t want to rip out my hair cause of poor kicking. Here we go, Kickers Korner Week 7.
32-Chris Blewitt, Washington Football Team
I don’t know how we didn’t see this coming. His name is literally Blewitt.
31- Greg Zuerlein, Dallas Cowboys
30- Greg Joseph, Minnesota Vikings
29- Austin Seibert, Detroit Lions
Seibert had a great week of kicking. 4-4 on field goals, and had an extra point attempt for the first time since Week 2.
28- Ka’imi Fairbairn, Houston Texans
27- Matt Ammendola, New York Jets
26- Dustin Hopkins, Los Angeles Chargers
The Football Team cut DHop before last week. Now he’s in LA, and with Boy Wonder under center, we’ll really see how Hopkins fares with more chances.
25- Zane Gonzalez, Carolina Panthers
Gonzalez doinked one Sunday, and it helped him. Sam Darnold on the other hand, didn’t help the Panthers.
24- Jason Myers, Seattle Seahawks
The residual rain from San Francisco on Sunday made its way to Seattle on Monday night, and it messed with Myers. Myers went 1-3 on field goals and never looked comfortable in the elements.
23- Jake Elliott, Philadelphia Eagles
Old faces in new places
22- Michael Badgley, Indianapolis Colts
The Badgley redemption tour is heading to your city! 3-3 on extra points, and was good from 42 in the monsoon.
21- Joey Slye, San Francisco 49ers
Not to be one upped by Badgley, Slye drilled one from 56 in the same monsoon on Sunday night.
20- Brian Johnson, New Orleans Saints
BJ might have won the DYNOTTPOTW if he played on Sunday. With Wil Lutz out, this is the foot that Saints fans should become familiar with.
19- Jason Sanders, Miami Dolphins
Like every Dolphin, Sanders hasn’t live up to expectations. Sanders is 7-10 on field goals, and missed what a kick that would have resulted in a win against Atlanta.
18- Chase McLaughlin, Cleveland Browns
17- Matthew Wright, Jacksonville Jaguars
16- Cairo Santos, Chicago Bears
Santos has been really good this year. Like, not missed a kick good in 2021. Santos has yet to attempt a kick from 50 plus, but he’s been lights out in every aspect of the game.
15- Randy Bullock, Tennessee Titans
14- Brandon McManus, Denver Broncos
13- Nick Folk, New England Patriots
Last week I thought Folk was done, again. Instead he’s back, and just crushing kicks. He won’t go away, and for good reason. Folk has almost been replaced twice this year, and has battled through it and been one of the best.
12- Ryan Succop, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
11- Chris Boswell, Pittsburgh Steelers
Kicking Top 10
10- Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers
9- Matt Prater, Arizona Cardinals
While the field goal kicking from Prater hasn’t been automatic in 2021, he hasn’t missed an extra point in this seven game win streak.
8- Daniel Carlson, Las Vegas Raiders
7- Graham Gano, New York Giants
Another great season going for GG, he was named NFC Special Teams Player of The Week with his three field goals and two extra points on Sunday.
6- Evan McPherson, Cincinnati Bengals
Very, very soon, Swaggy E will be in the top five of Kickers Korner. I read your last article, Andrew Tolva. Why wasn’t McPherson listed as the best kicker? You have fourty eight hours to respond.
5- Tyler Bass, Buffalo Bills
4- Younghoo Koe, Atlanta Falcons
3- Matt Gay, Los Angeles Rams
Matt Gay averages about two field goals and extra point attempts a game. A mortal might crack under the pressure, not Matt Gay though. If he was a Young Thug song, it’d be Solid.
2- Harrison Butker, Kansas City Chiefs
Butker missed one in Nashville, and had the only points for the Chiefs.
1- Justin Tucker, Baltimore Ravens
Tucker showed up Sunday against the Bengals, the rest of the offense, not so much.
Let’s hope for dry grass, and solid holds in Week 8. I can’t really stomach another bad week of kicks.
