Walsh converted both of his field goal attempts Sunday and also went 2-for-2 on extra points in Minnesota's win over Green Bay. Walsh finished out the year having made 12 consecutive field goals dating back to Minnesota's Nov. 29 win over Atlanta and was a perfect 4-for-4 from 50+ yards in that span. He made a league-high 34 field goals this season and showed consistent ability to convert from long range as he converted 12-of-15 FGA from 40 yards or more, making him one of the more valuable kickers in 2015. Perhaps more importantly, Walsh demonstrated the ability to bounce back from a shaky 2014 season in which he converted a league-worst 74.3 percent of his field goals.
Walsh made all five of his field goal attempts, but missed one of his five extra-point attempts, in Sunday's win over the Giants. Walsh made two field goals from longer than 50 yards. Walsh has missed four extra points (31-of-35), but has otherwise had a strong season. He's 12-of-15 on field goals from 40 yards or more.
Walsh made all three field-goal attempts, including a game-winning 36-yard field goal as time expired, in Sunday's win over Chicago. He also made both two extra-point attempts. After struggling in the preseason and in the team's first few games (missing two field goals and an extra point), Walsh has turned his season around the past three games. He's make all 11 field goal attempts the past three games including six from 40 yards or more.
Vikings kicker Blair Walsh made two of three field goals and both extra point attempts in Sunday's loss at Denver. He missed a 39-yard field goal attempt. "He needs to make those kicks. It's disappointing," head coach Mike Zimmer told ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities. Walsh's struggles continue as he's missed a field goal in his of his last seven games, including the preseason. He's 5 of 7 on field goal attempts during the regular season.
Vikings kicker Blair Walsh made 1 of 2 field goal attempts, missing from 44 yards, in Monday's loss to San Francisco. After going just 5 of 11 on field goals in the preseason, he appeared to lose the confidence of coach Mike Zimmer. "He didn't kick very good in pregame," Zimmer told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "I don't know, he hit 28 out of 28 in practice last week, so he's got to carry it to the game ... it's worrisome." Walsh signed a four-year, $14 million contract before the start of training camp, so the Vikings will have a hard decision whether to find a new kicker if he continues to struggle. Zimmer before had shown confidence in Walsh in the preseason, so he could be on thin ice.
