Gostkowski made one of his two field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point attempts in Week 7 against the Steelers. Gostkowski was perfect until the final play of the game, when he missed a game-tying 45-yard attempt as time expired. Earlier in the game, he had drilled a 51-yard field goal through the uprights -- his fifth converted kick from 50 or more yards through six games with the Titans. However, he's been inconsistent throughout the campaign, going only 9-for-14 on field-goal attempts for the season. Though the team stuck with Gostkowski through some early-season struggles, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Titans opt to bring in competition leading up to their Week 8 matchup against the Bengals.
Gostkowski missed both of his field-goal attempts but went 4-for-4 in his extra-point attempts in Week 6 against the Texans. Gostkowski played a role in a sloppy start to the second half for the Titans. On the team's first possession of the third quarter, he had a 27-yard attempt blocked. Two possessions later, he pushed a 37-yard kick wide right. He did redeem himself a bit by making all of his extra-point attempts, most importantly the final one to send the game to overtime. Gostkowski has had an uneven start to his tenure with the Titans, as he has gone only 9-for-14 on field-goal attempts across five contests this season.
Gostkowski made all six of his extra-point attempts in Week 5 against Buffalo. He did not attempt any field goals. Gostkowski was limited to only extra-point tries, but delivered on all of his opportunities. It appeared that head coach Mike Vrabel was going to turn to Gostkowski to attempt a 53-yard kick with just over four minutes remaining in the second quarter, but instead elected to take a delay of game penalty and punt the ball. Even with the limited opportunity in this contest, Gostkowski has converted 18 of his 19 total attempts since Week 1.
Gostkowski made all six of his field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point attempt in Week 3 against Minnesota. Gostkowski picked up the slack for a Titans' offense that regularly stalled once reaching scoring position. He accounted for 19 of the team's 31 points as a result, including field goals of 51, 54 and 55 yards -- the last of which proved to be the game-winning points. After a poor Week 1 performance during which he missed four total attempts, Gostkowski has missed only one of his last 13 kicks across the past two weeks.
Gostkowski made both of his field-goal attempts and three of his four extra-point tries in Week 2 against Jacksonville. Gostkowski nearly cost the Titans a win in Week 1 against Denver, missing three field goals and an extra point. However, he played hero in Week 2, drilling a 49-yard field goal with 1:36 left in the game to give the Titans a 33-30 victory. Gostkowski also drilled a 51-yard attempt to close the first half. He'll look to maintain this performance in Week 3 as the Titans take on the Vikings.
