Justin Tucker has the best field goal of 2021 due to it being record-breaking and a game-winner, but Matthew Wright is in the running for second place. He booted a 54-yard field goal in Week 6 that had more bend than we’ll see again this season. It looked like the kick was easily going to go wide right, but then it curved back in at the last second to just make it across the cross bar.
It was also a huge deal because of the Jaguars kicker woes. Josh Lambo struggled during the team’s first three games, missing all three field goal attempts this season and two extra point attempts in Week 3. He was inactive last week and Wright took over the job. Earlier in Sunday’s game, Wright had the Jaguars’ first successful field goal conversion of the season. The team had set a record with no field goals converted through the first five weeks of the season.
