... There have only been 10 field goal blocks in the league total this season, and two of them were Titans game-winners.

 

And half of them (5) were made by the Titans.

It’s definitely crazy how good the FG block unit has been.   Two big wins can be directly attributed to blocked kicks...which has to be some sort of record.  

 

And of course, Kern has been absolutely spectacular this year, consistently pinning opponents deep in their own territory every time he steps on the field.   

 

I don’t even mind the largely unremarkable performance of the PR/KR units.  It ain’t much...but at least they’re avoiding the huge, mind-numbing mistakes that were such an issue early in the season.  

 

The only big negative has been the sudden and unexpected demise of the kicking game, which has been a glaring issue all season and played a significant and direct role in two losses.

5 fg blocks in a season feels like it has 2 be a record or on pace 4 one. Anyone remember like 4 years ago when a interception or a blocked kick felt like it was the first one in forever. Now its a common occurrence.

You could have used “1” like 3 times in that post and didn’t.

I try and alternate between using numbers for word and real words. Don't ask me why. As much as being correct in my english means nothing 2 me on this forum it is a strange rule I try and follow.

 

I did type it and corrected it though. If that makes you better

I remember when they drafted MIchael Griffin they talked about how he had blocked all these kicks in college and that he would be playing a lot of STs, which he did; don't think he ever blocked a single one on the pro level.
