Cowboys K Brett Maher hits a new low with 10th missed field goal of the season

Cowboys, Brett Maher

The Dallas Cowboys can’t be feeling good right now. After their debacle against the Buffalo Bills in Week 13, it seems that the Cowboys are back at it against the Chicago Bears.

Against Buffalo, Cowboys kicker Brett Maher missed two field-goal attempts. He is already halfway to that total in his performance against the Bears after he pushed a 42-yard attempt wide right.

The latest missed field goal attempt from Maher put him in the lead for the missed kicks in the NFL so far this season with 10. He also has the most missed kicks of any kicker within a single-season over since 2015, according to Fox Sports NFL.

At this point, the Cowboys need to consider making some sort of a change at the kicker spot. It’s safe to say Maher has been a disaster and could easily cost them a crucial game at some point later in the season. Dallas can’t afford any missed kicks given that they are already too close to losing their lead in the NFC East.

Speaking of important games, the Cowboys has one on the horizon. They face the Philadelphia Eagles on the road in a Week 16 matchup that will likely determine who wins the division. It’s a contest where Dallas can’t afford to suffer from poor execution from Maher on field goal attempts.
