Pineiro converted a 51-yard field-goal attempt and all three of his PAT attempts in Sunday's 28-24 loss to the Buccaneers. Pineiro has made all seven of his field-goal attempts in four games with the Jets heading into next week's season finale against Buffalo. New York chose not to give him another opportunity in scoring range late, instead opting to go for it on 4th-and-2 with a four-point lead in an attempt to put the game away. The decision backfired, as the Buccaneers got the stop and then drove it down the other way for the game-winning touchdown.
Pineiro made both of his field-goal attempts and two of three PAT attempts in Sunday's 26-21 win over Jacksonville. Pineiro's first kick of the game was a blocked PAT, but he bounced back nicely, making his next PAT attempt for his lone successful kick of the first half. He was much busier in the second half, converting field goals from 42 and 20 yards out in addition to another PAT. The injury-riddled Jets offense moved the ball well against the lowly Jaguars, but that may not be the case in Week 17 against the Buccaneers, so Pineiro could suffer from a lack of opportunities.
Pineiro made his lone field-goal attempt and converted three PAT attempts in Sunday's 31-24 loss to Miami. Pineiro has made all seven of his kicks through two games as a Jet. His field goal in this one came from 27 yards out. With the Jaguars coming to town in Week 16, Pineiro could have some sneaky appeal for those trying to play matchups at kicker in the fantasy playoffs.
Pineiro made all three of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's 30-9 loss to the Saints. There weren't many positives for New York to take out of its latest blowout loss, but Pineiro's accurate performance in his Jets debut was a silver lining for a team that's tried three different kickers in its last three games. Pineiro connected from 36, 46 and 36 yards out, and Gang Green's kicking job will likely be his for the remainder of the season if he can build on this strong first impression.
Pineiro signed with the Jets on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The 26-year-old veteran will join New York's active roster just one day after Alex Kessman missed both his extra-point attempts in his NFL debut. Pineiro could see action with the Jets if Kessman's struggles continue.
