Catanzaro hit 21 of 28 field-goal attempts and 43 of 47 extra-point tries during the 2016 campaign.
The Cardinals' offense sputtered more this season than it did during Catanzaro's first two years, but the kicker didn't do himself many favors with occasional bouts of inaccuracy. After missing one field goal and one PAT in the first two games of the season, he proceeded to strike true all but two kicks (both field goals) across the next nine games, seemingly regaining his confidence as the weeks went by. However, he wasn't as precise over the next four outings, missing exactly one field goal in each one, while also hitting astray on three extra points. Catanzaro was able to gain some redemption in Arizona's Week 17 walloping of the Rams, netting successes on all eight attempts, including three field goals. Due to his status as a restricted free agent in the offseason, the Cardinals may opt to go in a different direction, but the more likely scenario is a prove-it deal for Catanzaro and the addition of competition to figure out their placekicker for next season.
Catanzaro's woes continued in Week 16, as he's missed exactly one field goal in four straight outings, but 53-yarders aren't exactly gimmes, especially in the raucous confines of CenturyLink Field. On the PAT front, he made amends with four successes on as many attempts following three combined misses in the previous two contests. He officially put his stamp on Saturday's game, though, as the clock wound to all zeroes. After Larry Fitzgerald's fourth and final catch placed the ball on Seattle's 25-yard line with 27 seconds remaining, Catanzaro trotted onto the field, calmly lined up from 43 yards, and struck true for the game-winner as time expired. While he achieved further redemption after missing an overtime freebie in Week 7 against these same Seahawks, he remains eight points shy of the century mark, which he reached in both of his first two seasons with the
Catanzaro knocked through one of two field-goal attempts and all four extra points during Sunday's 31-23 win against the Redskins.
After the Cardinals conceded an opening touchdown in the second half, Carson Palmer put together a 12-play drive to set up a 53-yard try, but Catanzaro pushed it wide left, keeping his side in a 13-10 hole. No matter, Catanzaro made amends by striking true on PATs on three ensuing possessions. With seven points in back-to-back games, he's averaging 6.2 per game, which puts him a tie for 22nd among kickers with at least 10 games under their belt.
Catanzaro struck true on both field-goal attempts and one extra point during Sunday's 38-19 defeat in Atlanta.
Catanzaro was afforded a trio of opportunities before halftime, including a 54-yard boot as the final seconds ticked off the clock. If the Cardinals' offensive rhythm had extended to the second half, a season-best performance was possible, but it wasn't meant to be. With one perfect outing after another, he's been one of the team's most consistent performers. However, the lack of explosiveness from Carson Palmer and company hasn't yielded the fruit of Catanzaro's first two seasons, when he averaged 7.1 and 8.6 points per game, respectively. In the current campaign, Catanzaro rings in at 6.1 points, which ranks 25th among kickers.
After missing one field goal and one extra point apiece in the first two games of the season, Catanzaro has failed on two kicks in the interim, both during a Week 7 tie with the Seahawks. Otherwise, he's been one of the
