Schmidt doing his part in punt game

The Bills got more than a decade’s worth of solid punting from Brian Moorman, who unfortunately had to do a lot more of it than any Buffalo supporter would’ve liked. Now Colton Schmidt in his second year with the Bills has been putting together some consistent efforts.

Schmidt was one of the better performers Sunday for Buffalo with a net punting average of 41.2 and a long of 53 on a five punt day. That 53-yarder was probably the best of the day for him. Backed up at the two-yard line, Schmidt punted from his own end zone, launching the 53-yard effort out of bounds to prevent any return at the Cincinnati 45.

Schmidt now ranks 4th in the NFL in gross punting average with a mark of 48.5. He’s also 8th in the league in net punting average this season with a mark of 42.4.
