  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Finishes sixth in scoring average

    Prater struck true on 30 of 37 field-goal attempts and 47 of 49 point-after tries in 17 contests during the 2021 season.

    The Cardinals finished with the 11th-ranked scoring offense at 26.4 points per game, but Prater himself ended up in a tie for sixth among kickers that made at least 16 appearances with the Ravens' Justin Tucker at 8.1 points per game. Arizona has a number of key skill players set to become unrestricted free agents in March -- RBs James Conner and Chase Edmonds, WRs A.J. Green and Christian Kirk and TEs Zach Ertz and Maxx Williams -- but being attached to a Kyler Murray-led offense should continue to be beneficial for Prater, who is locked up for $4.5 million in 2022.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Racks up 12 points in Week 18

    Prater made all three field-goal attempts and all three point-after tries during Sunday's 38-30 defeat to the Seahawks.

    With the 12-point performance, Prater pushed his way into a tie for sixth with Justin Tucker in terms of points per game (8.1) among kickers who played at least 16 games. While his success rate on FGAs (81.1 percent) is his second lowest since 2014, he has nailed 47 of 49 PATs (95.9 percent) on the campaign. Prater will look to keep it up in Monday's wild-card game versus the Rams.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Matches season high

    Prater made all four of his field-goal attempts as well as his only extra-point try in Sunday's 25-22 win over the Cowboys.

    Prater tied his season high in points by converting field goals from 24, 53, 26 and 38 yards. In doing so, he not only rebounded from missing three kicks in Week 16, but Prater also helped Arizona clinch a three-point win. The veteran now sports 125 points heading into the final game of the season, placing in the top 10 at his position league-wide.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Misses three kicks

    Prater missed two of three field-goal attempts and one of two extra-point tries in Saturday's 22-16 loss to the Colts.

    Prater missed from 51 yards to begin the game and then failed with his PAT after Arizona scored on its next drive. The veteran subsequently hit the right upright with a 41-yarder in the second half, before finally closing with a make from 28 yards. In the end, Prater's misses proved costly and directly contributed toward the Cardinals losing a third straight game. He'll strive to rebound from arguably his worst performance of the campaign in Week 17 versus the Cowboys.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Converts two field goals

    Prater converted both of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's 30-12 loss to the Lions.

Although he saw limited action against the Lions on Sunday, the 37-year-old has now made multiple field goals in each of the last three games, and he's converted all seven of his field-goal attempts while making all five of his extra-point tries during that time.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Connects on all five kicks

    Prater nailed both field-goal attempts and all three point-after tries during Sunday's 33-22 victory at Chicago.

    In the Cardinals' last game back in Week 11 at Seattle, Prater put together his worst showing of the season, missing a pair of field goals and an extra point. This time around, he had veritable layups when Arizona's offense faltered in the red zone, connecting from 33 and 25 yards. The nine-point effort ensured that Prater returned to the top 10 among kickers on a per-game basis (7.6, tied with the Eagles' Jake Elliott). Prater will aim to keep up the momentum next Monday versus the Rams.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Misses three kicks

    Prater missed two of three field-goal attempts and one of three extra-point tries in Sunday's 23-13 win over the Seahawks.

    Prater converted his first PAT before missing his second as well as a 39-yard field goal during the second quarter. Although he responded by hitting a 53-yard attempt to begin the second half, Prater subsequently missed a 36-yarder in the fourth. He ended by making another extra point, but overall it was Prater's worst performance of the campaign. Considering he'd gone five straight games without a miss prior to Sunday, Prater will aim to get back on track when the Cardinals return from their bye to face the Bears in Week 13.
