Will Evan McPherson have the chance to cement himself in NFL lore?
Evan McPherson is doing something that no other kicker has been able to do. He was the only kicker selected in the 2021 NFL Draft and is leading the league in kicks made over 50 yards. On top of making kicks throughout the season, he has made sure to make his kicks when they matter the most.
Through his first two playoff games, he has nailed the game-winner on both occasions. All of Cincinnati believes that if the game is on the line, McPherson will deliver.
What Cincy needs to do is be in a position at the end of the game to allow McPherson to win the game. This will come down to the defense stopping Mahomes on a few drives, and Burrow and the offense clicking on all cylinders.
This game is going to be a shoot-out between two incredibly talented teams. The winner is likely the team that has the ball last. McPherson has the moxy to win the game if it comes down to it, the good guys just need to do enough to give him the opportunity.
