Cincinnati Bengals MVPs

Special Teams MVP: Evan McPherson

There was not a ton of punting but when there was, no returners lit up the field. However, Evan McPherson continues his solid rookie season at the placekicking position. I don’t hold the Packers game against him simply because the weather was tough, and Mason Crosby also missed three field goals.

Minus that Packers game, McPherson has had quite a nice rookie season. The Bengals have had a tough time with kickers in the past but the Florida rookie appears to bring consistency to the position that the Bengals have been missing.

McPherson was perfect on the day hitting two field goals one from 52 and one from 30. He also nailed all five extra-point attempts. You can’t really ask anything else of your kicker on in a game. Again, minus that Packers game and the one missed field goal against the Jags, McPherson has been everything the fans could have hoped for. He’s 75% on the season on field goals.

Since he is a rookie there is plenty of room to grow. McPherson will grow and it was a good move getting him with a draft pick, as extra points aren’t the gimme points they use to be.

Kickers are no longer dime a dozen, so if you can find a good one and snatch them up, do it. He might not be the next Justin Tucker, but McPherson has a solid future with the Bengals.
