Cowboys stud: Brandon Aubrey, K
Brandon Aubrey is the special weapon that no one saw coming. Dallas signed him this offseason after a short stint in the USFL. At the time, many wondered what they were doing by signing a former soccer player who converted to kicker, without bringing in competition. Now, no one is wondering.
Aubrey has been a major weapon for the Cowboys and broke the record for the most made field goals in a row to start a career. Entering Week 14 with 26 made kicks, he came out and made even more history with his first two attempts against the Eagles.
In the first half, he nailed one from 60 yards out to make it 10-0. His next kick was in the third quarter after a penalty-filled drive ended in a 59-yard attempt. That one was perfectly down the middle — as was the 60-yarder — making it 27-13. What made this historic was the fact he's now the first kicker in NFL history to make two kicks from 59 yards out in the same game.
He's now 8-of-8 from beyond 50 and 30-of-30 after making all four of his kicks. His final ones on Sunday were from 45 and 50 yards, which felt like chip shots after his first two.
