WATCH: Former Auburn kicker Daniel Carlson wins game for Raiders with 35-yard FG
For all the success former Auburn kicker Daniel Carlson had on the Plains, he’s had some more significant issues putting the football between the uprights in the NFL.
The three-time Lou Groza Award runner-up was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the fifth round of 2018 NFL Draft but soon found out what a cutthroat business the league can be.
He got cut by the Vikings in Week 2 after he couldn’t connect on any of his three field goal attempts which left the game ended in a tie with the Packers.
The Raiders signed him in mid-October and were rewarded Sunday when Carlson hit the game-winning field goal against the Arizona Cardinals as time expired.
It was one of three he hit Sunday with the longest coming from 49 yards out.
Carlson never missed an extra point at Auburn and was 92 of 114 on field goals.
