Brett Maher Sets Multiple Dubious Records In Wretched Performance

Job opening in Dallas


January 16

Brett Maher might be looking for work this week.

The Cowboys kicker put on an all-time wretched performance in Dallas’ wild-card matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night. Maher, who missed three extra-point attempts all season, missed all three of his tries in the first half at Raymond James Stadium, prompting a relatable reaction from a disgusted Peyton Manning. He then missed his first PAT of the second half, leading to an equally humorous reaction from Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell, who was a guest on ESPN’s “Manningcast.”

The woeful effort landed Maher in the NFL record books. He became the first player in league history to miss three PATs in a playoff game, and also became the first player since at least 1950 to miss four in any game.

Maher missed his only extra-point try in Week 18. So, the four shanks Monday night gave him five consecutive missed PATs.

Not great!
