Brett Maher misses again against the 49ers: These are the best memes about the Cowboys kicker
Dallas Cowboys kicker Brett Maher set an NFL playoff record last week, and it’s not something to be proud of. His four missed points set the internet abuzz.
Dallas Cowboys kicker Brett Maher made playoff history last week in their Wild Card game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, after he became the first-ever kicker in the NFL to miss four extra points in a playoff game.
The embarrassing performance has shaken the 33-year-old’s confidence even further, it was cause for concern as they headed into the divisional round contest against the San Francisco 49ers.
Jerry Jones and Maher have a heart-to-heart
Even a pep talk from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones during pregame warmups failed to soothe Maher’s nerves, and he was unable to score that crucial extra point once again when his kick was blocked by 49ers defensive lineman Samson Ebukam in the second quarter.
Although Maher was able to get his act together later in the game to score a 25-yard field goal, it will be difficult to live down his record streak.
