Justin Tucker stunned everyone with a miss.The Baltimore Ravens' two-time All-Pro kicker is so good that nobody could believe it when he sliced a game-tying extra point wide right in a 24-23 loss to the Saints last month.It was Tucker's first career miss after nailing 222 straight.Despite the shank Drew Brees Jersey White , Tucker was voted the top player in the league at his position for the second straight year by a panel of 10 football writers for The Associated Press."With the best numbers in NFL history despite kicking in the Northeast and outdoors, is there any question Tucker tops this list?" said New York-based writer Barry Wilner.Tucker, the most accurate kicker in league history at 90.1 percent, received 92 points in a 10-points-to-one-point system with six of 10 first-place votes.The next three were the same as last year's rankings. New England's Stephen Gostkowski, Greg Zuerlein of the Los Angeles Rams and Indianapolis' Adam Vinatieri finished in that order.Gostkowski received 79 points, including one first-place vote, and appeared on every ballot along with Tucker and Vinatieri."Gostkowski is consistent, clutch and deadly accurate," said New York-based Dennis Waszak Jr. "He replaced Adam Vinatieri in 2006 and the Patriots' kicking game never missed a beat."Zuerlein, who received 63 points New Orleans Saints Kaden Elliss Jersey , has a powerful leg and is 26 of 45 (57.7 percent) from beyond 50 yards in his career, though the Rams don't need to call him much any longer because they find the end zone quite often."'Greg the Leg' can deliver from long range with the best of them," San Francisco-based Josh Dubow said.Vinatieri set a pair of NFL records this season, surpassing Hall of Famer Morten Anderson for most points and most field goals. The GOAT turns 46 on Dec. 28 and is in his 13th season with Indianapolis after 10 years in New England, where he helped the Patriots win three Super Bowls by making game-winning kicks in the final seconds in two of the wins.Vinatieri received 55 points and a first-place vote from Simmi Buttar."Doesn't matter how old he is. He's got the most points ever in NFL history. Case closed," said Buttar, who is based in New York.Wil Lutz finished fifth, one point behind Vinatieri. He is 19 of 20 on field goals for the Saints. Lutz got a pair of first-place votes."He's come through when called upon for a field goal, and he's limiting opponents in the return game by consistently sending kicks into the end zone," Nashville-based Teresa Walker said.Carolina's Graham Gano was sixth with 39 points. Kansas City's Harrison Butker was seventh with 35 points. Jason Myers of the New York Jets was eighth with 25 points. Buffalo's Stephen Hauschka came in ninth with 22 points. San Francisco's Robbie Gould edged Pittsburgh's Chris Boswell for 10th. Boswell is second behind Tucker on the all-time accuracy list at 87.7 percent.The rankings:1.

Robbie Gould, 49ers The road to the Super Bowl in the NFC goes through New Orleans."As we get closer and closer to the end of the regular season Cheap Kaden Elliss Youth Jersey , it’s time to start expanding ourlook each week to other teams in the NFC playoff hunt.Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY SportsComing into Week 16, the New Orleans Saints (12-2) had already locked up the NFC South. If Saints could beat the Pittsburgh Steelers (8-5-1) at home, they would lock up the #1 seed in the NFC and home field advantage throughout the playoffs. If the Saints lost but the Chicago Bears (10-4) also lost to the San Francisco 49ers (4-10), the Saints would at least be guaranteed a first round bye. If the Bears tied, and the Los Angeles Rams (11-3) also tied the Arizona Cardinals (3-11), the Saints would be get the #1 seed even with a loss to the Steelers.Well, none of that other “what-if” stuff ended up mattering. The Saints took care of business themselves, beating the Steelers 31-28 in a playoff-caliber heart-stopper. That means the Saints have locked up home field advantage, regardless of the Saints’ outcome in Week 17.The Saints, their coaches New Orleans Saints Kaden Elliss Jersey , and their fans, now have the luxury of sitting back and watching two weeks (Week 17 and the first round of the playoffs), only concerned with one thing: who will the Saints host in the divisional round?Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty ImagesNow into Week 17, there are really just looking to see what happens around the NFC playoff picture.The Los Angeles Rams (currently the #2 seed at 12-3), host the lowly San Francisco 49ers (4-11). If the Rams win, they will clinch the #2 seed and a first round bye in the playoffs. If the Rams lose, and the Chicago Bears (currently the #3 seed at 11-4) beat the Minnesota Vikings (the sixth seed at 8-6-1), the Bears will be the team with a first round bye, dropping the Rams to the #3 seed. The Philadelphia Eagles (outside the playoffs as it stands now at 8-7) will also be watching that Vikings game. If the Eagles can beat the Washington team (7-8) and the Bears beat the Vikings, the Eagles would be able to split past the Vikings as the #6 seed.In the divisional round Womens Kaden Elliss 2019 Jersey , it would be impossible for the Saints to play the Los Angeles Rams or the Chicago Bears, regardless of the outcome of their Week 17 games.Because the NFL reseeds after each round of the playoffs, the Saints would play the lowest remaining seed out of the Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks, and/or one of the Minnesota Vikings or Philadelphia Eagles - whichever of those two makes the playoffs.But at this point, the Saints focus is on one thing only:#GetHealthy
