Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers

Crosby had this problem last season as the Packers score touchdowns too efficiently. It’s when a team doesn’t convert their red zone opportunities into touchdowns is where a kicker thrives. But against the Niners, he wouldn’t be the only kicker to fare in similar ways. San Francisco has begun the season holding two kickers under 7.0 points.

Squib Kicks

Jake Elliott, Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys — Elliott only has one made field goal in each of the first two weeks of the season. Week 1, the Eagles were super efficient in scoring touchdowns, and in Week 2, there weren’t enough opportunities.

Cairo Santos, Chicago Bears at Cleveland Browns — It’s been slim pickings for Santos as the only two field goals he’s made have traveled a total of 50 yards. Opportunity is not coming around knocking on Santos’ door and will be more difficult with a rookie quarterback at the helm.

Matt Ammendola, New York Jets at Denver Broncos — Like Santos, Ammendola is not getting enough action with Zach Wilson having rookie growing pains. He has just two kicks totaling 56 yards but the Broncos are stout against opposing kickers.
