Folk beat out Billy Cundiff for the Jets’ starting kicker role. In the first game of the season, with 7 seconds left in the game, Folk successfully kicked a field goal from 48 yards to give the Jets an 18-17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In Week 5, Folk kicked the game winning field goal as time expired in a 30-28 win at the Atlanta Falcons. During a rivalry rematch against the New England Patriots in Week 7, Folk kicked another gaming-winning field goal to give the Jets a 30-27 overtime victory. Folk’s career-high 23 consecutive field goals made was snapped after missing from 48 yards during a 14-37 loss against the Bills.
