Update: He made it! The Cowboys scored their fifth touchdown and Maher hit his first extra point to end his amazing streak.
Update: Maher has done something nobody has done in recorded history. So he has that going for him I guess. We’ll see if they give him another chance. Maybe he’ll have a better shot at a longer field goal.
According to Elias, Brett Maher is the only player in any NFL game since 1932 to miss four extra points in one game, regular-season or playoffs. So there’s that.— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) January 17, 2023
Update: Brett Maher has now missed four extra points. Why Mike McCarthy keeps putting him out there instead of going for two is a mystery. The Cowboys now lead 24-0, but it should be 28-0. He had only missed six extra points in his whole career coming into this game.
“Bless his heart”

Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys are rolling right now with an 18-0 lead on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it should be 21-0. Dallas’ kicker Brett Maher has missed three extra points on their three touchdowns and now has missed four in a row dating back to their Week 18 loss to the Commanders.
Maher has had a strong season, but he obviously has the yips right now.

His quarterback wasn’t very happy either. Dak Prescott felt pretty strongly that they should have gone for two instead of giving Maher a third try.
