Week Ten featured many close games, including one in which a premature field goal snap by James Winchester of the Chiefs played a key role. Winchester snapped the ball too early on a late field goal attempt that prevented the kick. Later, a Chiefs game winning field goal attempt was blocked by Tennessee. Titans defender Joshua Kalu said after the game that he timed his block perfectly because the Chiefs failed to change the cadence on kick attempts during the game.
Earlier in the week, the Dolphins worked out veteran snappers Kevin McDermott, Matt Overton and Garrison Sanborn but did not make a change.
Off the field, the NFL announced its Salute to Service nominees for each team and three snappers were included on the list. Client Patrick Scales (Bears), Jon Weeks (Texans) and Joe Cardona (Patriots) were all nominated. The award is presented by the NFL in conjunction with USAA and honors someone that demonstrates an exemplary commitment to supporting the military community. The winner will be recognized the night before the Super Bowl.
Just one snapper, Josh Harris of the Falcons, recorded a solo tackle in punt coverage. The NFL Long Snappers Chart after Week Ten is below.
