Lindell=Maytag repairman?

He’s not exactly the Maytag repairman.  Bills kicker Rian Lindell has hit all nine of his PAT attempts this year.

But Lindell has not attempted a field goal so far this season, the only kicker in the NFL to not try a three-pointer after two games.

“It’s pretty rare,”  Lindell told us.  “You go through a couple of years where it’s maybe three-four games, I think even two years ago I  didn’t any attempts at the beginning of the year.  It feels a little funny to see a score without field goals.  But that’s all right.  We’re scoring touchdowns, and that’s fine, too.  If they’re going to score four and five touchdowns every game, I don’t think we can complain about that.”

That’s the upside.  The Bills are a perfect 5-for-5 on their red zone possessions so far this season–five trips into the red zone–five touchdowns.  Lindell says he’ll take that, and the victories, all year long.
