Steelers K Chris Boswell Suffers First Miss In Win Over Raiders

It finally happened.

In the third quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday win over the Oakland Raiders, kicker Chris Boswell missed his first field goal of the season.

Boswell, who signed with the team on Oct 3 after the team parted ways with veteran Josh Scobee, pushed a 41-yard attempt wide to the left with 2:59 left in the third quarter with the game tied at 21.

Up until his miss on Sunday, Boswell had connected on his previous 10 attempts with the Steelers.

The Rice product was able to rebound, however, as he kicked home the game-winner from 18-yards out with four seconds left in the game.

Boswell is the Steelers fourth kicker this year. After losing Shaun Suisham and Garrett Hartley during the preseason to injuries, the Steelers traded a draft pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars for Scobee just prior to the start of the regular season. The team released Scobee after he missed four of his 9 attempts in the team’s first four games of the season.
