McPherson connected on two extra points but missed both of his field-goal attempts during Sunday's 25-22 loss to the Packers.

McPherson hit the upright on a 57-yard field goal with 26 seconds left in the fourth quarter that would've put the Bengals up 25-22. After the Packers Mason Crosby missed back-to-back game-winning kicks, the rookie was summoned once again and pulled a 49-yard attempt wide left. McPherson was off to a hot start in his first season in the NFL, but Sunday's performance should temper expectations for the 22-year-old. McPherson will have a chance to bounce back against the Lions in Week 6.
