The Dallas Cowboys thoroughly dominated the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night and did so for a number of reasons, and one of them was one of their more powerful point-scoring weapons. We are, of course, talking about kicker Brandon Aubrey.

So far we are only 13 games into Aubrey’s Dallas Cowboys’ tenure and NFL career as a whole, and he has yet to miss a field goal attempt which is crazy in and of itself, but even more unbelievable when you consider that he has made 30 of them.

Aubrey was on a special kind of fire on Sunday night as he booted four total field goals, all from at least 45 yards out. All told, Aubrey drained shots from 60, 59, 45 and 50 yards away which earned him NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.

As mentioned, Aubrey is a perfect 30 for 30 on the season as far as field goals are concerned which is amazing given that he set the NFL record for most consecutive field goals made to start a career all the way back at 19. What he is doing is rather special.

The broadcast highlighted this during the game, but Aubrey is a certifiable weapon as noted above for the Cowboys. That Mike McCarthy has the confidence to call on him from so far beyond the arc puts the Cowboys in quite the advantageous position as an overall team. What a discovery and revelation he has been.
