Dallas Cowboys kicker Brett Maher is the gift that keeps on giving, missing a comically large amount of extra points during the NFL postseason, most recently against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at Levi’s Stadium.
Maher, 33, was on the wrong side of history last weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when he missed four extra points, the most-ever in a single game.
He is now 1-for-6 in PATs through two games in the 2022-23 NFL Playoffs. His most recent miss was actually a block by the Niners, but the trajectory of the ball seemed like it would go far left regardless.
Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy seemingly lost all confidence in Maher, choosing not to settle for a field goal on 4th & 4 with the score tied at six.
Fortunately for Dallas fans, quarterback Dak Prescott picked up the first down with his legs. Prescott then threw his second interception of the night.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones gives Brett Maher a pep talk
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was seen speaking with Maher ahead of the Divisional Round showdown.
Jones, 80, could have been saying anything but it was likely a pep talk that obviously did not work.
Dallas added kicker Tristan Vizcaino to the roster following last week’s debacle, though he did not get activated for the game.
As of this publication, with less than two minutes left prior to halftime, Cowboys and Niners are at a stalemate.
