  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Misses PAT in finale

    Prater did not attempt a field goal and missed one of two extra-point tries in Sunday's 38-13 loss to the 49ers.

    Prater's missed PAT was his only this season. The veteran also made 22 of his 25 field-goal attempts, proving fairly accurate despite a struggling Arizona offense limiting his opportunities. In missing four games due to a hip injury as well, Prater's 83 total points ranked 30th among kickers league-wide. The 38-year-old is now slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Heavily involved in Week 17

    Prater went 4-for-5 on field-goal tries and made his only PAT attempt in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Falcons.

    Prater was busy again Sunday, making multiple field goals for the fourth consecutive game. The 38-year-old was able to convert a 38-yard field goal in the first quarter and a 36-yarder in each of the second and third quarters before later adding a 57-yard boot in the final period. His only miss came late in the third when he sailed a 43-yard try wide left. Prater has gone 12-for-14 on field-goal attempts over the last four contests, raising his season total to 22 makes over 25 tries while appearing in 12 games.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Busy in Week 16

    Prater went 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts and made his only PAT try in Sunday's 19-16 overtime loss to the Buccaneers.

    Prater was busy for a second consecutive week Sunday, making a 56-yard field goal in the first quarter and a 53-yarder in the second quarter. He later added a third field goal from 39 yards in the fourth quarter while also recording a PAT in the final period of regulation. Prater has now attempted three field goals in three consecutive games, going 8-for-9 over that stretch, including four makes from over 50 yards. Arizona has a plus matchup in Week 17 against Atlanta, giving the kicker another opportunity to be heavily involved on New Year's Day.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Makes three FGs in Week 15

    Prater made all three of his field-goal attempts and didn't attempt a PAT in Sunday's 24-15 loss to Denver.

    Prater was effective from deep in the Colorado altitude, making kicks of 45, 50 and 55 yards. The Cardinals went for two after their only touchdown, and opportunities could be scarce moving forward, as Arizona could be down to third-string quarterback Trace McSorley if Colt McCoy (concussion) joins Kyler Murray (knee) on the sidelines.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Misses one field goal in loss

    Prater converted two of three field-goal attempts and his only extra-point try during Monday's 27-13 loss to the Patriots.

    Prater's opportunities were limited due to Kyler Murray (knee) exiting Monday's loss early and Arizona's offense stalling after that. The veteran has missed just two out of 14 field-goal attempts on the season, but his lack of consistent opportunities keeps him off the fantasy radar heading into a tough Week 15 matchup against Denver.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Nets six points in Week 12

    Prater made one of two field-goal attempts and all three point-after tries in Sunday's 25-24 defeat to the Chargers.

    Prior to Week 12, Prater was perfect on his 19 combined FGAs and PATs this season, so his miss from 49 yards out at the end of the Cardinals' first possession of the second half proved telling in a one-point loss. With the modest six-point effort, he amazingly upped his points per game on the campaign from 5.3 to 5.4, leaving him on the outside looking in at fantasy relevance.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Nails both kicks Monday

    Prater made his only field-goal attempt and only point-after try during Monday's 38-10 loss to the 49ers.

    Prater was back in action after sitting out Week 10 due to an illness, but a Cardinals offense led by backup quarterback Colt McCoy wasn't able to generate many scoring opportunities. Even when No. 1 QB Kyler Murray was healthy in Prater's six other appearances this season, though, the kicker attempted just eight FGAs and nine PATs. With an average of 5.3 points per game on the campaign, Prater ranks 29th in the NFL among placekickers with at least as many showings (seven) as he's managed.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Puts in full practice Thursday

    Prater (hip/illness) practiced fully Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

    Prater has been tending to a hip injury since Week 4 that sidelined him Weeks 5-7. He was able to handle scoring chances Week 8 before taking on all kicking duties Week 9, but an illness forced him to miss another contest this past Sunday at the Rams. The Cardinals signaled Prater's relative health when they waived his Week 10 replacement Tuesday, and indeed the former was back in full capacity to start Week 11 prep. Prater thus is set to be the team's kicker Monday against the 49ers in Mexico City.

  • Cardinals' Matt Prater: Won't play Week 10

    Arizona downgraded Prater (hip/illness) from questionable to out in advance of Sunday's game against the Rams, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Though Prater took the questionable designation into the weekend, his absence for the Week 10 game appeared to be a foregone conclusion after he didn't travel with the Cardinals to Los Angeles on Saturday. With Prater sidelined for the fourth time in six games on account of the right hip issue, the Cardinals have elevated Tristan Vizcaino from the practice squad to handle kicking duties this weekend.
