Only Zane Gonzalez performed worse than Carlson: He missed two field goals and two PATs. They replaced Walsh with Kai Forbath, an unassuming veteran without a huge leg. The 30-year-old was released by the Dallas Cowboys right before the regular season began in a cost-saving move following his injury-influenced regression in 2017. The last miss came on the game's final play.
Between all the games Sunday, there were nine games that had a missed field goal or failed PAT. "That is frustrating. That shorter one I should never miss like that".
Carlson sent 9 of 10 kickoffs for touchbacks, and the other one was a squib returned for 8 yards to Green Bay's 31.
The Vikings drafted Carlson in the fifth round back in April.
