McPherson converted both of his field-goal attempts while making all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 34-11 win over the Lions. McPherson had made just one of his four field-goal attempts across the last two games, but he bounced back by drilling all six of his kicks in Sunday's Week 6 victory. Across his first six professional appearances, the 22-year-old has converted seven of 10 field-goal attempts while making all 17 of his extra-point tries.
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.
McPherson made his only field-goal attempt and all three of his extra points during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Steelers. McPherson capped a 10-play drive to start the second half with a 43-yard field goal to give the Bengals a 17-7 lead. The rookie fifth-round pick hasn't missed over the first three games of his NFL career, making two 50-plus yard field goals along the way. His production will rely on Cincinnati's offense to continue to move the ball, but he is on pace for a solid fantasy season.
McPherson made both of his field-goal attempts and was successful on all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Vikings. McPherson was selected by the Bengals in the fifth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, and the rookie converted all five of his kicks in his first professional game. The 22-year-old made a 53-yard attempt early in the fourth quarter before drilling a game-winning 33-yard field goal as time expired in overtime. McPherson also made all five of his field-goal attempts during the preseason.
McPherson has been fantastic at camp so far, making nearly every kick, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports. Given that the Bengals used a fifth-round pick to acquire McPherson, he was going to win most tiebreakers over Austin Seibert for the job, and his performance will only aid him in that effort.
