Bailey's middle name is automatic.

Boswell 6/6
Bailey 3/3 including 2 over 50
Crosby 2/2 both over 50, actually 3/3 because he had to kick the game winner twice
Santos 1/1 from 48

Bills have a terrible kicker currently in Dan Carpenter. He can't be trusted from any distance, not even extra points. Every kicker misses an extra point over the course of a whole season these days since they moved it back, but Dan's missed about 7 or 8 I think over the last two years and numerous kicks between 40-50 yards and he doesn't hit the 50+ yarders like he used to. Carpenter had a fantastic season in 2014 that was worthy of a pro-bowl IMO, but his last two years he has been unreliable.

So it's an easy question. Yes or No, you are confident in your kicker? Reply with your teams name and kicker.
while he has missed a few, janikowski is also a reliable kicker from long distance, and dont forget prater either.

Hell no! Panthers, Graham Gano. Missing that kick in the opener killed our confidence and his too.

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is pretty damn good, one of the best in the business. He only missed 1 field goal or extra point this year.......and that was a field goal that got blocked, meaning that all kicks he got off (extra points or field goals) all split the uprights. I'd say Tucker, Bailey (Dallas) and Vinetari (Colts) are the 3 best kickers in football, and really you could cherry pick the order of them 1 through 3.

As an Eagles fan, I'll also vouch for Sturgis.

The Eagles kicker I didn't have confidence in, at least on long field goals, in recent years was Alex Henery. He was pretty good on kicks from the low 40s and in, but on anything longer than about 45 yards I had to cross my fingers because he just didn't have a strong enough leg.
