The narrative around Dallas Cowboys kicker Brett Maher has taken on a new tone over the last few days; when you make a 63-yard field goal that can happen.
Brett Maher has his strengths and weaknesses as a kicker. He’s not great, but he’s a fine kicker. He’s generally reliable and honestly these days even that is a rarity in the NFL.
What Maher did against the Philadelphia Eagles was special and as a result he picked up some props for it in the process. Maher’s 63-yard field goal was his third field goal from over 60 yards out which means he’s the only player in NFL history to accomplish such a feat. He’s the only three-time 60-yard member! He’s also the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

It really is quite amazing that the Dallas Cowboys managed to go from a kicker in Dan Bailey who at one point was the most accurate kicker in NFL history to someone in Brett Maher who is making his mark in the record books in a totally different capacity.
Congratulations to Brett Maher. What a leg.
