Maher converted 29 of 36 field-goal attempts and 32 of 33 extra-point tries in 2018. Maher beat out Dan Bailey for the Cowboys' kicking job back in early September, and he managed to keep a firm grip on the position all year. The 29-year-old made 119 points during the regular season, including six of seven field goals from 50 yards or more. Maher is under contract with Dallas for 2019 and appears likely to return as the team's starting kicker.
Maher missed his lone field-goal try and did not attempt an extra point in Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Colts. Maher had a 48-yard field goal blocked and returned for a touchdown, though that eventually got called back as the recoverer was ruled down by contact, following Dallas' first offensive drive of Sunday's game. After that, the Cowboys struggled to put him in scoring position, resulting in both parties finishing with a goose egg on the day.
Maher made three of four field-goal attempts and both his extra-point tries in Sunday's 29-23 win over the Eagles. Maher started by making from 28 yards, but then missed from 45 yards on his second attempt. Shortly thereafter, however, he nailed a 62-yarder as the first half expired, setting a Cowboys record in the process. The rookie's final make came from 21 yards, and with a couple extra points to boot, he put together his fifth double-digit scoring performance. That haul brought his season total to 106 points, which ranks eighth among kickers.
Maher made both his field-goal attempts and his only extra-point try in Week 13's 13-10 win over the Saints. Maher converted from 26 and 46 yards on his two field goals. The 29-year-old rookie has scored at least seven points in four straight games, bringing his season tally to 95.
Maher converted his sole field-goal attempt and made all four of his extra-point tries during Thursday's win over the Redskins. Maher made all five of his kicks during the Week 12 win. He's made 22 of 26 field-goal attempts on the year, along with 22 of 23 extra-point tries. He could be in line for a large workload during Thursday's Week 13 tilt against the Saints.
