Gano converted 29 of 30 field-goal attempts and 34 of 37 extra-point tries en route to 121 points this season. Gano, the Panthers kicker since 2012, had to earn his roster spot this season, as the team used a seventh-round pick on Harrison Butker following a 2016 campaign that saw Gano miss 11 times in total. While Butker enjoyed an outstanding rookie year with the Chiefs after Gano beat him out early in the season, the 30-year-old proved just why Carolina stuck with him. Although Gano's 121 points matched his 2016 mark, he was nearly flawless on his kicking opportunities, with his only missed field goal coming from 50-plus yards. Such improved accuracy resulted in Gano finishing 12th in points league-wide, and would figure to give the Panthers plenty reason to re-sign him as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
Gano made all three of his field-goal attempts (25, 28 and 30 yards) but missed one of his two extra-point tries in Sunday's 22-19 win over the Buccaneers. Gano's missed extra point marked just the fourth time he's missed on 65 total attempts this season. His 117 points on the campaign currently rank 12th league-wide.
Gano made a 33-yard field goal as well as all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Packers. Gano has notched seven points in back-to-back outings, while maintaining his record of just one missed field goal this season. That makes him a reliable kicking option in advance of next Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
Gano did not attempt a field goal but made all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Saints. Gano's scoring opportunities were restricted Sunday, but he still did all that was asked of him. Although his three points tied a season low, Gano still sports 93 on the campaign, placing him just outside the top 10 leaguewide.
Gano made all three of his field-goal attempts (40, 33 and 45 yards) but missed his only extra-point try in Sunday's 35-27 win over the Jets. Gano's failed extra point marked just his third missed kick of any variety this season. Through 11 games, he sports an admirable 90 points.
