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.
