Stephen Kostkovsky With 17 seconds left in the game on Monday, the Tennessee Titans went on to win the game 16-14, giving the team 16-14.
Kostkovki’s dissolution against Denver Francois in Monday night’s football cost the Titans season opener almost nothing. After Kostkovsky missed three field goals and one extra point, leaving 10 points on board, Tennessee beat host Francois very close.
“It’s hard, it’s part of the post; it’s very complicated,” Kostkovsky said. “This is definitely an opportunity I deserve, but thank you for getting on the team and going out and breaking their butts. I put them in a tough spot.”
Entering the game, the 15th-year veteran never missed three field goals in a game. Kostkovsky was unmarked from 47 and 42 yards and the 44-yard attempt was blocked. Now he has missed an extra point attempt in four games in a row.
“You never got that luck to get a chance to redeem yourself,” Kostkovsky said. “But guys I’m happy, I’m disappointed, ashamed, frustrated; but at the end of the day, we won, thankfully, guys are happy to go home.”
Kostkovsky joined the former Chicago Pierce football team Cody Barkey, Is now with the Cleveland Browns, the only footballer in the last 10 seasons to miss four kicks in a win.
When he was with the Patriots last season, Kostkowski made seven of his eight eight-goal attempts before being placed on injury reserves last October. The Patriots released Kostkovsky in March. The 36-year-old footballer underwent hip surgery and was taken away by the Titans.
Tennessee signed Kostkowski to a one-year, $ 2.75 million contract that would raise a kick game. To accommodate Kostkovsky, the Titans released the kicker Greg Joseph 11 days before the start of the season.
“I’ve come here, I’m come out here and play like that,” Kostkovsky said. “Guys still need to support me, yet my back is beautiful. That’s the great thing about team sports – you’ve won as a team. Obviously a level like mine, everyone sees it when you screw up. That’s why I’m so grateful for the chance I got in the end – ‘guys win Deserving ones. ‘
For ESPN statistics and information research, the Titans have been 1-to-9 in field goal attempts over the past nine regular season games. Tennessee made only 44.4% of their field goal attempts last season, 20% worse than the closest team (Jets, 67.9%). This is the only time since 2001 that a team has made less than 60% of its field goal efforts.
