Tennessee Titans’ Stephen Gostkowski redeemed with 25-yard winner after four misses

Stephen Gostkowski overcame a nightmare of a game to kick the winning field goal from 25 yards out with 17 seconds left on Monday, giving the Tennessee Titans a 16-14 victory. Gostkowski’s meltdown almost cost the Titans the season opener against the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football. Tennessee’s win over the host Broncos was much closer than it should have been, as Gostkowski missed three field goals and an extra point, leaving 10 points on the board. “It’s tough. It’s part of the position. It’s a very fickle position,” he said. “It’s definitely an opportunity I didn’t deserve, but grateful that I got it for the team and the guys that went out there and busted their butt. I really put them in a tough spot.” Entering the game, the 15th-year veteran had never missed three field goals in one game. Gostkowski was off the mark from 47 and 42 yards and saw a 44-yard attempt blocked. He has now missed an extra point attempt in four consecutive games.
