Chandler Catanzaro had a breakout season in 2015 and expectations should be high again this season. Catanzaro made 28-of-31 field goals and 53-of-58 extra points. His extra points were second in the NFL behind Graham Gano (56) and the Cardinals kicker finished third in the league with 137 points.
While he was eighth in the NFL in field goal accuracy last year at 90.3 percent, Catanzaro was only 27th in extra point percentage at 91.4 percent. According to the team's official web site, the five misses caught the ire of HC Bruce Arians at one point, although he later felt he was too harsh after noticing other kickers missed their fair share too. Catanzaro said only a small adjustment is needed to have more success on extra points in 2016.
2016 Bottom Line
Whatever the case, the opportunities will be there and few kickers will be playing with as prolific of an offense. In case you missed it, the Cardinals finished first in the NFL in total offense and second in scoring. With all of their skill position players returning, Arizona will continue to produce loads of scoring opportunities.
