Slye did not attempt a field goal but made his only extra point in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Saints.
Slye was limited to PAT work as Carolina's offense struggled to get in scoring position for the second straight week. Despite combining for just three points in his last two outings, Slye still racked up 120 points on the campaign, making 29 of 36 field goals and 33 of 36 extra points. Notably, however, five of Slye's field-goal misses came from 50-plus yards, where his strong leg influenced the Panthers to attempt potential record-long kicks on a couple desperate occasions. However, he still improved on his rookie point total while finishing 13th league-wide in the category, further establishing himself as a reliable commodity at the position despite Carolina's offense teetering with superstar Christian McCaffrey (thigh) unavailable for the most of the 2020 campaign.
Slye did not attempt a field goal and missed one of his three extra-point tries in Sunday's 20-13 win over Washington.
Slye went wide right with his opening PAT attempt, marking his first extra-point miss since Week 3. That miscue along with zero field-goal attempts left Slye with a season low in points. However, with 119 total stops this season, Slye will have another chance to add to his career best Sunday versus the Saints.
Slye made all three of his field goals as well as his only extra-point try in Saturday's 24-16 loss to the Packers.
Slye converted from 36, 22 and 33 yards on his field goals, which helped him reach double-digit points for the fifth time this season. With four straight games of at least eight points, Slye currently sports 117 with two contests remaining.
Slye made both of his field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 32-27 loss to the Broncos.
Slye converted from 35 and 26 yards on his field goals, which, along with his three PATs, gave him a third straight outing with at least eight points. That production sees Slye currently sitting on 107 points this season, ranking him eighth among kickers league-wide.
Slye made two of four field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 28-27 loss to the Vikings.
Slye converted from 40 and 21 yards on his respective field-goal makes, but he had a 28-yarder blocked in the third quarter and then went wide left with a 54-yarder to win the game as time expired. Although he'll be disappointed by those missed opportunities, Slye's nine points Sunday marked his highest total in his last six appearances, bringing his tally to 98 points through 12 games.
Slye made both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 20-0 win over the Lions.
Slye's big leg was on display, as he converted a 56-yarder in the third quarter for a new career long. The second-year pro then made a 37-yard kick in the fourth, bringing his tally to eight points, which marked his best total since Week 6.
Slye made his only field-goal attempt and both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 46-23 loss to the Buccaneers.
Slye converted from 46 yards on his lone field goal, but with his opportunities limited Sunday, he posted his fourth straight game with single-digit points. Although Slye still sports 81 points through 10 games, his recent outputs have slowed his pace significantly.
Slye missed two of his three field-goal attempts but made all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 33-31 loss to the Chiefs.
Slye converted from 47 yards on his first field goal, but then hit the left upright from 51 yards and went wide right on a potential-record, 67-yard attempt as regulation expired. By making all four of his PATs, however, Slye managed seven points in total, his highest amount over the past three weeks.
Slye made his only field-goal attempt as well as both of his extra-point tries in Thursday night's 25-17 loss to the Falcons.
Slye converted from 39 yards on his field-goal effort but again had his opportunities limited by a Panthers offense that struggled to move the ball. With All-Pro tailback Christian McCaffrey (ankle) seemingly set to return in Week 9, however, Slye could get more involved going forward, and his current total of 69 points through eight games still represents quality value.
Slye made one of two field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Saints.
Slye's only miss came on a 65-yard attempt that would've set an NFL record while tying the game with under two minutes remaining. The big-legged kicker was just short on that try, but he converted from 43 yards on his prior field-goal attempt Sunday. Through seven games, Slye now sports 64 points, and he has a great chance to add to that hefty total in Week 8 versus the Falcons.
The Panthers activated Slye from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.
Slye's activation after just two days suggests the kicker's placement on the list may just have been precautionary. He's now on track to fill his normal duties Sunday at New Orleans. Slye has connected on 16 of 18 field-goal attempts through six games this season.
The Panthers placed Slye on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.
Slye's placement on the list means that he has either tested positive for COVID-19 or has been in close contact with another person who has tested positive. The Panthers don't currently have another kicker on the roster, so look for the team to make a transaction ahead of Sunday's game against the Saints. Slye will remain in isolation from the team until he tests negative for the coronavirus on two occasions at least 24 hours apart.
Slye made three of four field-goal attempts and his only extra-point try in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Bears.
Slye converted from 21 and 20 yards on his first two field-goal efforts, then missed wide right from 54 yards before closing the day with a 48-yard make. With an extra point tossed in there as well, the second-year pro hit double figures for the second straight game, bringing his season tally to an impressive 58 points through six outings.
Slye made all three of his field-goal attempts and both his extra-point tries in Sunday's 23-16 win over the Falcons.
Slye converted from 38, 39 and 22 yards on his field-goal tries, bringing his tally to 11 points on the day. The second-year pro has notched double-digit points in three of five outings this season, with Sunday's performance marking his second without a missed kick.
Slye missed one of two field-goal attempts but made all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Cardinals.
Slye converted from 27 yards to open the fourth quarter but then went wide right from 42 yards to stall Carolina's next series. Although his seven points produced a decent return, Slye has now missed a kick in three out of four games thus far, leaving further points on the board Sunday.
Slye made all five of his field-goal attempts but missed his only extra-point try in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Chargers.
Slye nailed kicks from 29, 24, 30, 22 and 31 yards as Carolina's offense failed to score touchdowns from in close. The one time the Panthers did find the end zone, however, Slye's extra-point try was blocked. Although he'll be disappointed by having missed two of his five PATs so far, with a season-high 15 points Sunday, Slye still sports a healthy 30 through three weeks.
Slye made his lone field-goal attempt as well as both his extra-point tries in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Buccaneers.
Slye, who missed an extra point in Week 1, was perfect on his three kicks Sunday, converting from 23 yards on his only field goal. Through two games, the second-year kicker now sports 15 points.
Slye made all three of his field-goal attempts but missed one of his two extra-point tries in Sunday's 34-30 loss to the Raiders.
Slye converted from 47, 46 and 31 yards on his respective field goals, showing his strong leg in the process. However, the second-year kicker went wide left with his first extra-point attempt of the season, putting the Panthers in a tough situation as they trailed by four points late. While Slye will be disappointed by that miscue, his fantasy owners should at least be encouraged by him posting double-digit points to start the season.
Slye is left as the only kicker on the Panthers' roster with the team choosing to cut Graham Gano (knee), Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
Slye filled in for an injured Gano last season and quickly made an impression with his leg strength. The rookie missed four PATs and a chip-shot field goal, but he went 8 of 11 from 50-plus yards and forced touchbacks on 66 of 70 kickoffs (94.3 percent). While there's no guarantee he puts it all together, Slye offers obvious potential to be one of the best kickers in the NFL. He may even have a strong enough leg to warrant fantasy consideration without the benefit of being attached to a top offense.
Slye is expected to compete with Graham Gano for the Panthers' kicking job during training camp and the preseason, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Slye replaced Gano as the Panthers' kicker after the latter went down with a season-ending knee injury during the 2019 preseason. The 24-year-old went on to convert 25 of 32 field-goal attempts and 31 of 35 extra-point attempts during his inaugural NFL campaign. Gano had been the team's main kicker since 2013 prior to his injury.
