and welcome in Everybody is This is a sports Titian once again here in sports cast, Their thinking gets so much for being apart here to sports community tonight.
So going over a lobe of New England Patriots football news, worry now is that they have another change at the kicker.
Positions of the kicking Carousel continues once again in Foxboro for the New England Patriots going to go over news today, or what happened here with the Patriots.
The 18 no Patriots have gone from starting off the season with Steven Gots Kowski, the 13 year vet toe hammer landing on injured season ending I R.
With a hip injury to now.
It was Mike Nugent for the past couple weeks, who was released after missing two field goals.
You want 58 on the season and field goals, 15 for 16 for extra points as Nugent's kick one of them was blocked last week in the last one, he shanked in the rainy, down Point Rain Agile et Stadium.
On Sunday, he shake that one well out to the crowd, well wide left of the goalpost.
So today Mike Nugent has been released from the Patriots and the Patriots have signed Nick Foca, kicker who was 2007 Pro Bowler, The 34 year old Nick Folk who kicked in an NFL game.
He hasn't kicked in an NFL game in over two years.
Nick Folk did kick in the A F.
Ford Ara average in the hot shots earlier in 2019 during his career.
So far, Nick Folk has me 245.
Career field goes out of the 305 attempts that's going towards 80%.
Makes out of his fuel.
Goes for Nick folk.
Now, a little bit of a flashback here for Nick Folk.
This is something that I'm just is very disturbing for fans and, ah, Patriots fans like me here that I just did not want to see this signing at all.
Because if you go back to that flashback with Nick folk flashback two years ago, the week five of the 2017 season it was on Thursday Night Football, the color rushed game with the Patriots were wearing that color rush jerseys at the pirate ship that take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
That's where Nick Folk was the kicker for the Buccaneers.
The pagers won that game, 1914.
Because Nick Folk missed three field goals in that game, he went zero for three from field goal range.
He missed the 56 yard or right before halftime, a 49 yard field goal, miss and then the last one with 5 39 left to go in the fourth quarter.
He missed that ship shop, a 31 yarder, and Jim Nansen Tony Roma, who is on the call.
Both of them were like, He's gonna make this right here and he did it.
And then the next day, Nick Folk was really released from the team as he was cut from the Buccaneers.
We welcome in Tim and Tom over to the SportsCastr chat.
What is good? Thank you so much for joining me right now.
Just going over NFL news that the Patriots release Mike Nugent today and signed Nick Folk to the squad.
So Nick Folk did hit the longest kick, as he did play in the Alliance of the American Football League A f when it did exist for its brief time back in the late winter into early spring.
So in the A, F Nick folk didn't make the longest field goal when it did exist, a 55 yarder in the 2019 A F short season in 2017.
Nick Folk kicked.
He only made six field goals out of 11 attempts.
That's only good for 54.
He he was put on injured reserve with an injury designation there for Nick Folk, so something must have been hurting.
Why you? I wasn't able to kick there was a field goals and only makes six out of 11 of them are.
He hasn't kicked on NFL in two years to the environment, especially when he takes on the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday on the away game.
The environment can really plug into you the external noise and factors in a primetime game there for Nick.
We'll see how he does on Sunday night.
If that does have any factor to him by my take here about the Nick Folk signing, I'm just honestly, really surprised that the Patriots didn't go after Atlanta Falcons former kicker Matt Brian.
Matt Bryant was released today.
I'm surprised they didn't go after him.
He was released today thought that they go in that direction for the 42 year old kicker there, Matt Bryant.
But instead he went into the direction signed Nick Folk as he's the former Dallas Cowboy, the former New York jet and last kicked with the tip of a buck in years.
And then he was released after his last game, which was against the Patriots on October 5th, 2017.
So little bit of a coincidence years that the last game he did play was against the Peaches for the buck in years, and it's weird year he had signed by the Patriots just over two years later.
The field goals will really matter here for New England.
In the upcoming schedule, they plead easy teams the first Laker games and now to the second portion of their schedule.
The points will matter that the the point the point differential will be thinner.
I believe here for the Patriots for the second half of their season there, eight and nowhere now, But let's look at the teams that they will face on Sunday.
They'll take on their toughest opponent yet.
The Baltimore Ravens at Baltimore.
That game could be a close one and they need every single ounce of effort on there in the field to make every single field goal that they do.
Attempt by Nick Folk on Sunday.
After a weekend by, they do take on the Philadelphia Eagles and Week 11.
That is no cakewalk, either.
For the game Fill, You just beat Buffalo on Sunday and crush them 31 13 and then a week 12.
They take on the Dallas Cowboys.
Dallas has been a little bit shaky.
They started off the season really well, but lately they've struggled to find their groove.
But now they're coming off a bye.
So we'll see y'all, Dak Prescott, Zio Elliot and Amari Cooper and the rest of the Dallas Cowboys can't respond in Week 13 to get a tough match of once again at Houston going up against the Houston Texans.
That will be a tough matchup for the Patriots, and Week 14 expected ton of points on the board in the pages do play the Kansas City Chiefs.
They're going to need every single ounce of kicking that they do need from Nick folk this season.
As Faras Week 15 the point shouldn't really be as much of a much as a factor there for the Patriots.
They do take on the Cincinnati Bangles, who are winless, so that shouldn't be a game where they need to rely on, like, three points or, like one point to beat the Bangles and that one as faras Week 16 though, they take on Buffalo last time they took on the Bills.
That game is really tight, so they're gonna have to rely on Nicole for that game of the week. 17.
They don't really need them high.
I would imagine they're taking on the Miami Dolphins.
Well, you didn't do need them that generate points, but it's not like it's going to make a difference at all when you're taking on the Dolphins.
So all these weeks now, besides 15 when they take on the Bangles and 17 against the Dolphins, those two games I see their blowouts or the Patriots.
Other than that, the other games could be very well closer.
They take on actual teams with actual quarterbacks year that are really tough in the upcoming schedule, coming tough for the picture to the Patriots, going with experience, Year of the kicker possession, Nick folk instead of Yung Wei Qiu, who is on the practice squad signed by the Peaches earlier in the month.
And then he was released, and he signed today, actually with the Atlanta Falcons after Matt Bryant was released.
So young White coup is the kicker for the Atlanta Falcons.
The Patriots also tried another kickers during workouts like Kai Forbath, Blair Walsh, Giorgio to Vecchio, Elliot Fry and Nick Rose.
But they ultimately decided to go that with this one right here, Nick Folk, 2007 Pro Bowler here in the NFL and he'll be back kicking his first ever game in the NFL in over two years.
So much for joining me.
Here is we're on the sports dish on SportsCastr, as this is a teacher's news update.
The Patriots releasing Mike Nugent today and signing Nick Folk to their squad.
