Gostkowski Says He Completely Blew It On Critical FG Miss

Kicker Stephen Gostkowski is typically one of the more reliable members of the team, but recently he’s fallen on hard times. He missed a 42-yarder during the third quarter of last week’s loss to the Steelers and missed again in Sunday’s loss to the Giants during the second quarter from 27 yards out with a chance to take a 3-0 lead into halftime.

“I could go out there and probably make 100 of those in a row, but you have to be able to do it when it’s your time,” Gostkowski said. “I have to do a better job getting ready to make every kick. That’s unacceptable. It’s an awful feeling to come up on the short end of the stick as a team and personally to give us a chance to carry some momentum into the half, and on a kick I could make left-footed that I just completely blew. It’s just not a good feeling.” Gostkowski said he that he won’t soon shake this one off and that he’ll spend a lot of time trying to figure out what went wrong.
