Blaming the kicker is the easiest out in the NFL, especially when he misses a game-winning kick, as Dan Bailey did in the Cowboys’ 31-29 loss at Baltimore. So let’s blame Dan Bailey, but not because he missed a potential game-winner with :06 to play. Let’s blame him because he missed after his team drove the field down 8 late, scored, failed on the two-point conversion, but then recovered the onside kick—which happens roughly 26 percent of the time.
