Is Graham Gano's job in jeopardy?
Could the Panthers make a change at placekicker?
Graham Gano hasn't been a bad kicker for the Carolina Panthers this season, but he also hasn't been the most clutch specialist in the league at times.
Gano has been with the Panthers since 2012 and he's been the full-time kicker since 2013. He's kicked at a clip of 83 percent or above on field goals since 2013, but this year he's at 75 percent with nine makes in 12 attempts.

The former Florida State kicker has also missed two extra points, including the potential game-tying kick on Sunday in New Orleans. Carolina eventually tied the game later with a touchdown and two-point conversion, but Ron Rivera was asked about Gano's struggles and if he has any concern over them after the game.
“We’ll see. You’ve got to look at what’s happened – not just now, but what’s happened over the period of time," Rivera said, via the Charlotte Observer. "There’s some things that we’re going to look at and evaluate obviously, and we’ll see what happens.”
Gano missed three extra points (56-of-59) all of last season.
