Graham Gano, Carolina Panthers vs. Baltimore Ravens

The life of an NFL kicker is a series of peaks and valleys. Sometimes that peak can run for a long time and then it can all go downhill in an instant. It will go back up, eventually, and for good kickers like Gano, the wait shouldn’t be too long, but he’s in a bad stretch right now. He has had a lack of opportunities the last two weeks and after making a record-tying kick in Week 5, he misses an extra point in two straight games. Now, the good thing is that Gano has not missed any field goals he’s attempted but without enough opportunities, Gano’s scoring potential has run dry.
