Browns' Austin Seibert: Has first FG misses of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert missed both of his field-goal attempts and made all three extra-point kicks in Thursday's 21-7 win over the Steelers in Week 11.

Seibert, who made all of his field-goal attempts through the first nine games, saw his perfect streak end Thursday. He missed from 45 and 50 yards, both wide to the right. The first miss, the 45-yarder, can be blamed on the snap/hold, but the second one was all Seibert and wasn't close. It was his first attempt this season from beyond 50. He's had potential every week given the Browns' poor execution in the red zone, but Thursday was not a good night for the rookie.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Misses long extra point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert made 2-of-2 field-goal attempts and 1-of-2 extra-point kicks in Sunday's 19-16 win over the Bills in Week 10.

Seibert, who remains a perfect 16-of-16 on three-pointers, could not be faulted on the missed extra point. After Cleveland scored on its opening drive via a 17-yard touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry, the receiver was penalized for taunting, and Seibert missed a 48-yard extra-point attempt. The missed extra point loomed large until the final minutes, but the Browns overcame red-zone woes to score a winning touchdown on their final drive. The rookie ranks 18th in scoring (16th among placekickers) with 61 points and 18th in field-goal attempts.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Remains perfect
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert converted all four of his field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point kick for 13 points in Sunday's 24-19 loss to the Broncos.

Cleveland's red-zone offense was once again shaky, as the Browns notched just one touchdown in five trips and settled for field goals three times. Seibert connected on kicks from 30, 27 and 30 yards, while he added a fourth from 39 yards on a drive that did not reach the red zone. The rookie has made all 14 of his tries this season, but he hasn't had many opportunities for additional scoring. The Browns' underperforming offense not only bogs down in the red zone, it ranks 25th overall with 16 touchdowns. Consequently, Seibert's attempted just 14 extra points (12 conversions).

Browns' Austin Seibert: Makes all kicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert went 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts and nailed his lone extra-point kick in Sunday's 27-14 loss to the Patriots.

Seibert remained perfect in the field-goal category despite kicking in less-than ideal conditions. His two field goals, from 38 and 47 yards, were dead center during a windy, rainy Sunday in Foxborough. We still haven't seen an attempt from beyond 50, but the rookie's nailed all 10 of his attempts thus far and has 41 points through seven games.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Little impact in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert successfully converted 2-of-3 extra-point kicks and did not attempt a field goal in Sunday's 32-28 loss to the Seahawks.

For the third time in six games, Seibert was held to three or fewer points. Cleveland's offense, specifically quarterback Baker Mayfield, has struggled out of the gate. The quarterback has thrown a league-high 11 interceptions, and the team ranks second with 14 turnovers, which can limit a kicker's scoring opportunities. Seibert has attempted just eight field goals over six games.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Accounts for Browns' only points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert made a 30-yard field goal in Monday's 31-3 loss to the 49ers.

The Browns struggled on the road, and Seibert was only called upon for one attempt and he nailed it. He has now connected on all eight field-goal attempts this season, including three over 40 yards. Seibert will look to get more opportunities in Week 6 against the Seahawks.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Dealing with hip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert was listed as a full participant on the Browns' injury report with a right hip injury.

This could be nothing of concern for Seibert, but it should be pointed out in light of the Patriots placing Stephen Gostkowski on injured reserve with a left hip injury that will require season-ending surgery. Kickers, moreso than other players, may be able to play through injuries, but the hip is central to placekicking.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Hasn't missed since Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert converted both of his field-goal attempts and all four extra-point kicks for 10 points in Sunday's 40-25 win over the Ravens in Week 4.

After missing his first kick Week 1 -- an extra-point try -- Seifert has been perfect since, nailing his next seven extra points while going 7-of-7 on field-goal attempts. The Browns unclogged their offense against the Ravens, scoring touchdowns on four of five drives where they reached the red zone, a stark difference from Week 3. That meant less need for three-pointers, but the team's ability to move the ball consistently -- they rolled to 530 total yards -- gave Seibert's leg enough chances for his second double-digit scoring game in three weeks. His 29 points leaves him middle of the pack for kickers, but that could improve if Cleveland's offense begins to deliver on the preseason hype.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Perfect in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert was 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts and made his lone extra-point kick in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Rams in Week 3.

The Browns offense reached the red zone four times and managed just one touchdown, affording Seibert with a pair of short field goals, one from 23 yards and another from 35. The Browns' fourth red-zone trip was on the final drive in the waning seconds of the game, and a field goal was not an option. Cleveland has scored touchdowns four times in eight trips to the red zone, a percentage conducive to solid fantasy production for a kicker.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Performs better Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert successfully converted all three of his field-goal attempts and two extra-point attempts in Monday's 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Seibert made field goals from 23, 48 and 43 yards while the hyped Browns' offense was unable to pull away from the Jets. After underwhelming in Week 1, when he shanked an extra point before becoming irrelevant in a blowout loss to the Titans, this was a nice rebound for the rookie kicker.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Shanks extra point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert made one of two extra-point kicks in Sunday's 43-13 loss to the Titans in Week 1.

Seibert set the tone for an ugly home loss for the Browns, who scored a touchdown on their first drive only to watch their rookie kicker miss the extra point. He won the kicking job with a strong finish to the preseason but missed his first kick in a real NFL game. The Browns had more issues than their kicking game, like three interceptions and 18 penalties. They may be able to clean up the mistakes, but Seibert's shaky preseason and extra-point miss in Week 1 do not inspire confidence at this point.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Adjustment leads to consistency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Browns special teams coach Mike Priefer explained Seibert's plant foot was causing inconsistencies in his leg swing, leading to his errant kicks early in training camp, Dan Labbe of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

After a rocky start, Seibert nailed his final seven field-goal attempts of the exhibition slate, including a 54-yard boot against the Buccaneers, and won the kicking job over incumbent Greg Joseph. "He was jamming himself a little bit with his plant foot and that caused some inconsistencies with his leg swing and follow-through and ball contact," Priefer said. The Browns offense is considered middle-of-the-pack entering the regular season, but they do have highly touted skill-position players, which could turn it into a high-scoring unit.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Survives cuts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert made the Browns' initial 53-man roster, beating out incumbent Greg Joseph for the placekicking job.

Seibert, a fifth-round draft pick in 2019, separated himself from Joseph over the final two preseason games, connecting on all eight of his kicks. He overcame doldrums early in camp, where he twice made one of four field-goal attempts in drills and then missed kicks of 37 and 40 yards later in camp. The rookie out of Oklahoma will open the season as the kicker unless the Browns find a better option on the waiver wire.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Perfect in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert made both of his field-goal attempts and two extra-point kicks in Thursday's preseason win over the Lions.

It was a surprise to see Seibert handling the kicking chores, as head coach Freddie Kitchens planned to let Greg Joseph have that role Thursday. Kitchens went off script and let the rookie Seibert build off the momentum of last week's game against the Buccaneers in which he went 4-for-4 on field-goal attempts. Perhaps Kitchens knows what to expect from the incumbent Joseph and wanted to get one more look at Seibert.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Nails four field goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert successfully converted all four field-goal attempts in Friday's 13-12 loss to the Buccaneers in preseason Week 3.

Seibert got the night started with a 54-yard field goal, then cleaned up three drives that reached the red zone for kicks of 36, 30 and 35 yards. After both Seibert and fellow kicker Greg Joseph struggled to make kicks during practice, a popular opinion entering preseason Week 3 was that the Browns were biding time until a veteran kicker became available after final roster cuts, but Seibert, a 2019 fifth-round draft pick, may have changed that opinion.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert missed three field-goal attempts during Monday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Seibert has endured a rough training camp and is not a lock for the starting gig in Cleveland despite his fifth-round draft pedigree. Interim kicker Greg Joseph hasn't shown well either, having struggled with accuracy in practice and missing a kick in each of the Browns' preseason games. It doesn't appear that the Browns currently intend to add another kicker to the roster, but it remains to be seen whether Seibert or Joseph will start Week 1.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Struggling early in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert went 1-for-5 on field-goal attempts during Sunday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Seibert also endured a rough offseason program, so his early impressions certainly leave something to be desired. The 22-year-old was drafted in the fifth-round this past April, but if he doesn't show some improvement soon, he figures to start falling behind Greg Joseph in the competition for the kicking job.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Heads to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns selected Seibert in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 170th overall.

The former Oklahoma Sooner was college football's most active kicker in 2018, attempting an FBS-high 88 extra points. Oklahoma didn't settle for many field goals so he had just 19 attempts, but Seibert did hit 17 of them. He'll head to camp to compete with Greg Joseph for the Browns' main placekicker job.
