Finding a holder with a larger profile didn’t change the fortunes of Cowboys kicker Nick Folk Sunday.
Folk went one-for-two in field goals Sunday, missing from 42 yards out. He’s three-of-nine over his last five games, which would be a good average if this was baseball. Folk hasn’t hit a kick over 36 yards during his recent slump.
“If you aren’t going to make all of them, you’ve got to make a certain
percentage,” coach Wade Phillips said after the game. “He’s not making that certain percentage right now.”
Phillips admitted the team will look at all their options. One option could be to use kickoff specialist David Buehler. But Buehler … Buehler said recently he hasn’t even been practicing field goals much this season.
To recap: The Cowboys are carrying two kickers on their roster and neither one can kick field goals.
