Week Three of the NFL is done and there were some big special teams plays this week, including the Cardinals blocking a field goal attempt by the Niners. This is a common occurrence, as the Cardinals have blocked an amazing 17 kicks since 2008. Sunday’s block was more notable since they had only nine men on the field.
The Browns also had a field goal kick blocked by the Ravens and Browns snapper Christian Yount may be vulnerable after some poor kick snaps the last few weeks. The Giants blocked a punt in their win against the Texans, although Zak DeOssie of the Giants had a poor field goal snap in the same game. The three teams that had either a blocked field goal or punt all won their games.
Earlier in the week, the Falcons extended the contract of snapper Josh Harris until the 2018 season. Harris would have been a restricted free agent after this season and joins Garrison Sanborn of the Bills, who had his deal extended just prior to the start of the regular season.
Jon Weeks (Texans) and DeOssie (Giants) had solo tackles this week, while Jon Condo (Raiders) and Jeremy Cain (Bears) each added an assisted tackle. The NFL Long Snapper Chart after Week Three is below.
