  • Broncos' Wil Lutz: Continues perfect streak

    Lutz went 2-for-2 on field-goal tries while making both of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's 70-20 loss to the Dolphins.

    Lutz was perfect on kicks for the second straight week, albeit in a blowout loss to the Dolphins. The veteran connected on field goals from 25 and 31 yards out in the contest. Lutz will look to improve upon Sunday's performance when the Broncos visit the Bears in Week 4, as Chicago is giving up an average of 35 points per game this season.

  • Broncos' Wil Lutz: Perfect on kicks

    Lutz went 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts while making all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 35-33 loss to Commanders.

    After an underwhelming performance in Week 1, Lutz bounced back Sunday by making all five of his kicking tries. The veteran connected on field goals from 31 and 32 yards out in the second half of the contest. The Broncos' offense appears to be on the right track under head coach Sean Payton, so its possible Lutz could see more scoring opportunities going forward in 2023. The 29-year-old will look to continue his perfect streak when the Broncos visit the Dolphins in Week 3.

  • Broncos' Wil Lutz: Makes one field goal in loss

    Lutz made one of two field-goal attempts while converting one of two extra-point tries in Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Raiders.

    Lutz struggled in his first game with the Broncos, as his inaccuracies were devastating in a game that Denver lost by just one point. The veteran's missed field goal was a 55-yard attempt that went wide right, but he was able to later convert a 24-yard field goal in the fourth quarter. Lutz will look to bounce back in Week 2 when the Broncos host the Commanders.

  • Broncos' Wil Lutz: Traded to Denver

    The Saints are trading Lutz to the Broncos on Tuesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

  • Saints' Wil Lutz: Leads kicking competition

    Lutz has demonstrated improved leg strength in training camp and is well ahead of Blake Grupe in the Saints' kicking competition, Jeff Duncan of reports.

    Lutz made a 62-yard field goal in practice and has been accurate throughout training camp. He made 23 of 31 field-goal attempts for the Saints in 2022 for a career-low success rate of 74.2 percent, but Lutz will be looking to rebound closer to his career conversion rate of 84.6 percent in 2023.

  • Saints' Wil Lutz: Takes pay cut

    Lutz restructured his contract with the Saints on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Networkreports.

    The veteran kicker actually took a bit of a pay cut, as he'll have a chance to earn back only half of the $1.5 million via incentives this season. Perhaps more importantly, this moves essentially assures the 28-year-old will at least be on the team entering the 2023 season after finishing this season 23-of-31 on field-goal tries, including 8-of-14 from attempts from 40-plus yards out. Lutz missed the entire 2021 season with an abdomen injury that resulted in core-muscle surgery.

  • Saints' Wil Lutz: Ends season on sour note

    Lutz missed both field goal attempts and converted his only extra-point try during Sunday's 10-7 defeat to Carolina.

    Lutz's streak of consistency over the second half of the season came to an end Week 18. The 28-year-old missed his first 44-yard field-goal attempt wide left early in the second quarter. Lutz also had a chance to put the Saints up 10-7 with under two minutes remaining, though this 55-yard attempt also went wide left after being tipped near the line of scrimmage. Lutz ends his career-worst 2022 campaign by converting 74 percent of his 31 field-goal tries while knocking through all 33 of his point-after tries over 17 games. He also had his shakiest season on long-distance tries, going 8-for-14 on attempts of 40 or more yards. Lutz could be in line for a make-or-break 2023 season as he enters the fifth and final year of his current contract with New Orleans.

  • Saints' Wil Lutz: Nails 54-yarder in win

    Lutz went 2-for-2 field-goal attempts and 2-for-2 on point-after tries during Sunday's 20-10 victory over Philadelphia.

    Lutz split the uprights on a 54-yard attempt to put the Saints up 10-0 midway through the second quarter. This marked the 28-year-old's first attempt of 50 yards or more since Week 5, and he's now gone 4-for-5 on such attempts this season. Lutz will enter the final week of the 2022 campaign converting a career-low 79 percent of his 29 field-goal attempts, though he's been perfect on all 32 of his extra-point tries over 16 games.

  • Saints' Wil Lutz: Knocks in another short FG

    Lutz converted his lone field-goal attempt and was 2-for-2 on point-after tries during Saturday's 17-10 victory over the Browns.

    Lutz continued to hit his layups, as his four made field goals over the last three games have come from within 39 yards. The sixth-year kicker has not attempted a field goal beyond 40 yards since Week 12, and all four of his 50-plus-yard tries came over the first five games of the year. Lutz is now 21-for-27 on field-goal attempts and has been perfect on all 30 of his point-after tries in 2022. The Saints should once again rely on Lutz to convert short field goals Week 17 versus Atlanta.

  • Saints' Wil Lutz: Few opportunities Week 15

    Lutz did not attempt a field goal, and nailed all three extra-point tries during Sunday's 21-18 win versus the Falcons.

    Lutz was denied his best opportunities for field goals Week 15, as the Saints fumbled and turned the ball over on downs during two of their four trips within the Atlanta 30-yard line. Otherwise, New Orleans' offense came away with two touchdowns to tight end Juwan Johnson in the red zone. Lutz remained efficient, as he has now missed just one kicking attempt over the last six games. For the season, the 28-year-old has gone 20-for-26 on field-goal attempts while making all 28 of his point-after tries. Lutz will look to keep up this solid run of kicking against Cleveland in Week 16.

  • Saints' Wil Lutz: Back to full practice

    Lutz (illness) practiced fully Thursday.

    After sitting out Wednesday's session due to an illness, Lutz was back operating on all cylinders one day later, all but clearing him Sunday's matchup with the Falcons. On the season, Lutz sits in a tie for 20th among kickers with at least 12 appearance with the Broncos' Brandon McManus at 6.5 points per game.

  • Saints' Wil Lutz: Sidelined with illness

    Lutz didn't practice Wednesday due to an illness, Katherine Terrell of reports.

    The severity of the aliment remains unclear, but Lutz will have two more opportunities to practice before the team needs to make a decision on his status for Sunday's game against Atlanta. The Saints don't have another kicker on the 53-man roster or practice squad, so any signing heading into the weekend would be an indication that Lutz isn't on track to play.

  • Saints' Wil Lutz: Reliable performance in MNF

    Lutz converted all three field goal attempts and his only extra-point try during Monday's 17-16 defeat to Tampa Bay.

    Lutz's production benefited from the Saints' struggles to come away with touchdowns in the red zone, as he converted field goals of 38, 21 and 29 yards. The sixth-year kicker has now made 20 of his 26 field goals while converting all 25 of his point-after tries this season. Lutz has also failed to connect on just two kicking attempts since Week 4. The Saints are on bye Week 14, but he should see a healthy number of opportunities when the team takes on an Atlanta defense that ranks 29th in total yards Week 15.
