Bills' Dan Carpenter: Misses cost Bills slim playoff hopes
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Carpenter was just 1-for-3 on field goals in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. He made all four of his extra-point attempts, but the two misses -- on a day where Miami's Andrew Franks was better -- ended up making a huge difference in the overtime loss.

Carpenter has typically come up big against his former team, but he and the leaky Buffalo defense wore the goat horns in this one, and the Bills are now officially out of the playoffs for the 17th straight season. At least he gets a good Week 17 matchup at the Jets should the weather cooperate, but with a poor 75 percent success rate on field goals and five missed extra points this season, Carpenter's job may not be a sure thing heading into next year,

Bills' Dan Carpenter: May not hit 100 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter hit his lone field-goal attempt as well as all three extra-point tries during Sunday's loss in Oakland.

The Bills have a decent offense, but Carpenter simply isn't getting the volume as he has in past seasons, and with 75 points on the campaign he'll at least need average output to hit the century mark for the eighth time in his nine NFL seasons. All four of the Bills' remaining games will be played in stadiums that see the usual December weather patterns (three at home, one at the Jets).

Bills' Dan Carpenter: Misses another extra point
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Carpenter made his only field-goal try -- a 23-yarder -- but missed one of four extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over the Rams. It was Carpenter's second extra-point miss of 2016 after he missed six of them last season.

Carpenter's job is probably safe unless more hiccups come along, as he's made over 85 percent of his field-goal attempts in each of his three full seasons with the Bills. But the issues with extra points became a nuisance for coach Rex Ryan last season, and between two missed ones in 2016 as well as two missed field-goal tries, he's probably on less sturdy footing than earlier in his stint with the Bills.

Bills' Dan Carpenter: Boots a pair
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter made both of his field-goal attempts during Sunday's upset over the Cardinals -- a 19-yarder and a 45-yarder -- but missed one of four extra-point attempts.

The extra-point attempts were a big issue last season, when six misses almost cost Carpenter his job. However, Sunday's miss was his first of the season, and he's been true on eight others. With the Bills winning big, Carpenter's job seems fairly secure for the time being; however, his 17 points on the season put him just tied for 21st among the league's kickers.

Bills' Dan Carpenter: Confirmed as Bills kicker
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Carpenter's teammate Jordan Gay was released by the Bills on Wednesday, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

Gay was used as a kickoff specialist last season and was brought in for the same potential role this campaign, more so than as a threat to Carpenter's place-kicking job. Despite missing six extra points last season, Carpenter has been reliable throughout his career, converting 84.8 percent of his field-goal attempt, including 96 percent (123 of 128) from inside of 40 yards. He has also made 13 field goals of 50-plus yards (on 19 attempts) in his three seasons with the Bills.
