Bailey connected on all three of his extra point attempts in Week 17's loss to Washington. The Cowboys kicker was his usual excellent self in 2015, posting a career-high 93.8 percent success rate on his field goals (including five of six from 50 yards or longer) and knocking through 100 percent of his extra points, but reduced opportunities provided by a struggling, injury-ravaged offense resulted in a career-low 115 points for Bailey on the season. Assuming Tony Romo and Dez Bryant stay on the field in 2016, however, Bailey should be able to improve on his totals in 2016.
Bailey connected on his only PAT and all four of his field goal attempts, including a 54-yarder in the final seconds to give the Cowboys a 19-16 win over Washington. It's the 10th game-winning kick of his career, as he continues to extend his franchise record. Bailey's been a steady if not elite fantasy presence this season, kicking multiple field goals in 10 of 12 games en route to a career-high 96.2 percent success rate and putting through all four of his attempts from 50-plus yards, helping soften the blow of the PATs lost due to the Cowboys' offensive struggles without Tony Romo.
Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey connected on two field goal attempts from 30 and 38 yards as well as both his extra points in Sunday's 26-20 OT loss to the Saints. While injuries to Tony Romo (collarbone) and Dez Bryant (foot) have taken the explosiveness out of the Cowboys offense, Bailey's accuracy has allowed him to remain a consistent fantasy asset, as he has yet to miss a kick this season.
Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey had his only field goal attempt blocked in Dallas' 26-21 loss to the Packers Sunday in the divsional round of the playoffs. Bailey drilled all three of his extra point attempts. Bailey finishes the year 26 of 32 on field goal attempts and a perfect 62 of 62 on extra points.
Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey made just one of his two field-goal attempts in his team's 24-20 win over the Lions in Sunday's Wild Card game. The Cowboys offense was gifted with a short field after an interception on the first play from scrimmage in the second half, but the team wasn't able to turn the turnover into points after Bailey pushed his kick wide right. He redeemed himself in the fourth quarter, nailing a 51-yard attempt to cut the Lions' lead to three points before the offense delivered a go-ahead touchdown late in the game. Bailey, who also had three extra points in the win, will kick outdoors in the second round of the postseason when the Cowboys square off with the Packers in Green Bay Sunday.
