Aldrick Rosas switched from Pro Bowl to putting the Giants in the hole.
Rosas missed the PAT for the third straight game and an exchange of ostrich holders prevented the kicker from even trying another while the Giants' wounds were chasing points on Sunday from a 34-27 loss to the Jets at MetLife Stadium.
Pat Shurmoor often says that the Knights get "to miss one [PAT] in their lives," so special teams trio Zack DeOsie,
"I don't think our confidence is lowered or someone is shaken, but when we get on the pitch, we have to score points and help that team win, "said Rosas. "It's simple and simple: push the ball through the goals of the goal."
With all the other flaws that the Giants have on both sides of the ball, there is little room for error, such as passing points. The Giants squandered a chance to level the score at 1
"We are one," said Rosas. "All 11 need to work together to put points on the board."
After 21-19, the Giants scored a two-point conversion, but Golden Tate was called for an offensive pass intervention. The penalty took the points off the board and turned it into a 43-yard PAT attempt for Rosas, who missed a wide right.
Rosas is 8-of-10 for field goals – he only attempted six in his first eight games of the season – and 19-for-22 on PATs. He also missed three PATs in his first season in 2017 before blossoming into an unexpected Pro Bowler when he missed just one field goal and one PAT in 65 kicks in 2018.
"I don't know," said Rosas. when asked the reason for his return non-compliance. "We have to trust each other and trust the operation."
Special teams coordinator Thomas McGowy offered an explanation earlier this week: Rosas lost his rhythm.
"Sometimes he tends to get a little, he gets a little anxious," McGowie said. "He needs to calm down, slow down the pace and go through his mechanics, go through his progressions and not rush through anything. That's his problem right now. “
