Parkey converted a clutch 54-yard kick with 1:10 remaining in the fourth quarter to give the Dolphins the lead for good. It was a fantastic start to the season for the 25-year-old, which he will hope to continue against the Jets in Week 3.
The two teams are scheduled to make up the contest Nov. 19 in Week 11 of the regular season, meaning both the Dolphins and Buccaneers will play 16 consecutive weeks to conclude the campaign. Parkey, who was picked up off waivers from the Browns on Sunday after Miami parted ways with Andrew Franks, is now slated to make his Dolphins debut Sept. 17 against the Chargers.
Over the course of 33 career NFL games, Parkey has converted 55-of-65 field goal attempts, an 84.6 percent clip. He was selected to the Pro Bowl following a 2014 season that saw him make 32-of-36 field goal attempts en route to setting an NFL rookie scoring record with 150 points. He'll look to re-boot his fantasy stock now that he's away from the Browns and working behind a Miami team that seems to bring more upside on offense than Cleveland does.
After being cut by the Browns, Parkey will now have an opportunity to replace Andrew Franks as the Dolphins' kicker. Parkey hit 20 of his 25 field goal attempts in 14 games with Cleveland last season and also spent the entire 2014 campaign as the Eagles' top kicker.
Parkey was reportedly cut by the Browns after losing the kicking competition to rookie Zane Gonzalez, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
The Browns haven't officially announced the release of Parkey yet, though multiple sources have confirmed it. Parkey hit 20 of 25 field goals for Cleveland in 2016, but that didn't stop Cleveland from drafting Gonzalez in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft to compete with him. Parkey went toe-to-toe with Gonzalez throughout training camp and the preseason but clearly didn't do enough to make the Browns give up on their recent draft pick.
