Week Fifteen in Review

Week Fifteen is complete and featured a rare bad extra point snap from Lonie Paxton of the Broncos.  Ten different snappers recorded tackles, led by Garrison Sanborn (Bills) who had a solo and assisted tackle.  Jeremy Cain (Jaguars) has an assisted tackle, while Brett Goode (Packers), Jake McQuaide (Rams), Zak DeOssie (Giants), Matt Katula (Vikings), Don Muhlbach (Lions), Jon Condo (Raiders), Jon Dorenbos (Eagles) and Mike Leach (Cardinals) all had solo tackles in punt coverage.

Vikings snapper Cullen Loeffler, who is on injured reserve, was recently named to the All-Fundamentals Team by USA Football for his “consistency and technique.”

The recent edition of ESPN The Magazine reported some interesting facts about kickers this season.  Through Week Thirteen, punters are averaging 45.1 per kick and kickers were on pace for the second most field goals in a season.  The story also noted that the average time from snap to kick for kickers is 1.24 seconds, down from 1.32 a few years ago.
