One part of a football team that many fans, and unfortunately many NFL front offices and head coaches, overlook is the kicking game. A good kicker can add some serious points for a team over the course of the year. They can make more overall because they are more accurate or they can make more because they have superior leg strength and can kick from farther away. A kicker can have a huge impact on a team’s season and end up being one of the most depended on players on the roster.
