NFL- Kicking Situations In 2019 Season – From Best To Worst

Well, this is one of the most expected sport events in North America. It is among the “Big Four” North American Professional Sports Leagues (MLB- Major League Baseball, NBA- National Basketball Association, and NHL- National Hockey League).
This article will show you how NFL players were ranked in terms of the kicking situations they created in the 2019 NFL season. The following list will come from the most impressive to the least.
So. What are you waiting for? Let the game begin.

Kicking Situations – From Best To Worst

In the 2019 NFL season, some players have shown their superiority by giving the balls such astonishing kicks, contributing to their teams’ victories. On the contrary, some teams had injuries, failures, or something “cursed.”
Let’s get into it to find out.

Absolutely Nothing To Worry About

In the 2019 season, the thirty-year-old Baltimore Ravens player had a perfect performance- 10-of-10 on field goals and 15-of-15 on extra points.
Despite having made an unbelievable 50-yard field goal, he was the only one perfect enough among kickers.
Although there were many teams whose players had not missed yet, anything could happen. Anyway, Justin Tucker, given what he had performed in the 2019 season, should be noted as the most successful placekicker of all time.
Tucker is on the top of the all-time career field-goal percentage by nearly three full percentage points. ( 90.48 percent while the second-place belongs to Will Lutz with 87.5.)

So Far, So Good

Jake Elliott Of Philadelphia Eagles

Josh Lambo Of Jacksonville Jaguars

Chris Boswell Of Pittsburgh Steelers

All kickers in this list have successfully kept a 100% accuracy on both field goals and extra points in the 2019 season. Once again, they proved that they were the core of the team- something can not be missed. That is why their contracts with the teams seem to be longer.

The Best Of The Next

Dan Bailey Of Minnesota Vikings
Wil Lutz Of New Orleans Saints
Harrison Butker Of Kansas City Chiefs

The reasons these guys are below Boswell, Elliott, and Lamb is because they have failed some kicks in the 2019 season, but in return, they have striking backgrounds.
Firstly, Lutz and Butker share one thing in common- youth (Butker is only in his third NFL season while Lutz is in his fourth), and both of them perform excellently to date.
That is why they are called into the team a lot as the productivity of their respective offences.
Bailey, who has more experience playing in the NFL than the previous players, ranks sixth on the all-time field goal accuracy list. And little do we know why he struggled when signing with Minnesota in 2018. Such a bummer for Minnesota!
In the 2019 season, Bailey succeeded seven out of eight tries and seemed to have ironed out his kinks.

So-So

These guys on the list below were all doing OK in the 2019 season.

Mason Crosby Playing For Green Bay Packers
Brandon Mcmanus Of Denver Broncos
Dustin Hopkins Of Washington
Aldrick Rosas Of New York Giants

Robbie Gould Played For San Francisco 49ers

When we first drafted this list, Robbie Gould ranked second based on how accurate his kicks were. However, after the shocking results of all games in the season, he came to this list.

Gould had struggled with a headstart in the 2019 season after completing the 2018 season as the most accurate kicker in the league. Specifically, in his first six contests, he failed seven kicks (12-for-19), and then in Week 9, he got injured.

Greg Zuerlein Of Los Angeles Rams

Zuerlein has long been seen as one of the best kickers in the league, having the nicknames “Legatron,” and “Greg the Leg.”
This 2019 season, he has been through many ups and downs, though, failing half of his attempts from 40 to 49 yards, such as a potentially game-winner victory against the Seahawks.

Old Age Matters

Matt Bryant, Atlanta Falcons

In the 2016 season, at the age of 41, he claimed his first Pro Bowl; two years later, he hit 95.1 percent of his field-goal attempts at age 43.
But with a hamstring injury in 2018, three are the number of missed games that Bryant did not expect.
Bryant- a bald man with a grey beard, has missed two out of the six goals he had attempted – something more than what he failed in 2018. So, the old age truly affected Matt Bryant’s performance.

Don’t You See The Big Yellow Tuning Fork?

Jason Sanders Of Miami Dolphins

In the 2019 season, Jason Sanders has missed three kicks(4-of-7) and has already failed even more of all the field-goal kicks in the last season.
Sanders would be smart to flub if he had another chance for a game-winner; however, Miami didn’t exchange all of its great players for some kickers who bring the team 1-15.

Brett Maher Of Dallas Cowboys

In September 2018, the Dallas Cowboys made a bold move when it sacked Dan Bailey out of the team to recruit a rookie- Brett Maher.
While he scored no rouges as a rookie, what Maher performed in 2018 was acceptable while Bailey, who was in Minnesota, struggled for a place. Well, that seems Dallas’s decision looked OK.
However, Maher version 2019 was not going great. Thirty-six yards is his long field-goal kick on the season since he has flopped both 40 yards or longer. Moreover, another shocking accident came to Maher when he missed a 33-yarder, bringing a 34-24 loss for the team.

Conclusion

Earl Thomas’ Wife Found him Naked in bed with Multiple Women and his Brother

NFL star Earl Thomas was held at gunpoint by his wife Nina after she allegedly discovered him with other women. According to a source, the shocking incident occurred in the early hours of April 13, when the 31-year-old Baltimore Ravens safety was confronted by his spouse Nina at an Airbnb in Austin, Texas.

Nina pointed a 9mm Berreta at her husband’s head, before he managed to wrestle the weapon away from her. Police arrived to the scene, and Nina was arrested for burglary of a residence with the intent to commit aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Later she was subsequently released from custody.

Nina Thomas was arrested last month after she held her husband, NFL star Earl Thomas, at gunpoint after she discovered him cheating.

According to a police report, Earl and Nina had been arguing about his drinking habits on April 12, before his brother Seth picked him up. After that, Nina allegedly logged into his Snapchat account and noticed a video of him with another woman. Then she used the account to track him to a nearby Airbnb rental and invited two of her girlfriends to come with her.

Nina said she took Earl’s 9mm Berreta pistol with the intention to ‘scare him.’ When she arrived at the rental, Nina reportedly ‘discovered Earl and his brother Seth naked in bed with other women,’ at which point she pulled out the gun and put it to her husband’s head.

Earl shared a snap to Instagram on April 12 – just hours before he was reportedly caught in bed with other women. Nina thought ‘the gun could not fire’ because she ‘took out the magazine.’ However, that weapon still had a round in the chamber. An onlooker inside the rental home made a video of the incident, which shows Nina pointing the gun at Earl’s head ‘from less than a foot away, and it can clearly be seen that her finger was on the trigger and the safety is disengaged.’ Earl wrestled the gun away from Nina before she struck him in the nose. One of Nina’s friends was allegedly holding a knife. Police arrived at around 3.41 am and arrested Nina and her two friends. Earl was not taken into custody.

Nina allegedly discovered Earl naked in a bed with multiple women and his brother. The incident happened just a week after he was selected in the NFL’s 2010s All-Decade team. After the scandal broke on Wednesday – just hours before his 31st birthday – Earl shared a video to Instagram, stating: ‘Stuff like this happens. Pray for us as we go through this. We’re back talking. I’m seeing my kids’. Earl and Nina are high school sweethearts who tied the knot in 2016 and have three children together.
