When Dan Bailey makes his next field goal he will qualify as the most accurate kicker in NFL history. Bailey has been so good that he could miss his next five attempts and still surpass Mike Vanderjagt’s mark.
In his three-plus seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, Bailey has made 99 of 109 attempts for a 91-percent success rate. Vanderjagt, whose short-term run with the Cowboys in 2006 was a disaster, holds the record at 86.5 percent.
That is a very impressive stat for the Cowboys kicker. If the Cowboys can continue to shine in more than two phases of the football game they will be very hard to beat this week. I can see the Cowboys squeezing out a victory this week against Seattle Seahawks.
