Week 11 of the 2016 NFL season will be remembered for some of the most horrendous kicking performances in league history.
Entering the second quarter of the late-afternoon games — including Thursday night’s matchup — kickers across the league had totaled 11 missed or blocked extra points, setting a new record in futility.
Of course, the previous record was set when the extra points were snapped from the two-yard line, whereas today’s extra points are kicked from 33 yards out. Still, there’s no excuse for all these missed kicks from pro-level players.
Week 11 isn’t even over yet, either! There could be several more missed extra points.
If any teams are looking to make a kicking change entering Week 12, former wide receiver Chad Johnson has let everyone know that he’s available for the job. At this point, why not give him a try?
