Draft Scout Dan Bailey News
12/14/14 - K Dan Bailey has been a big part of the Cowboys' success. He kicked a key 49-yard field goal in the fourth quarter that made it a two-score game. The fourth-year player from Oklahoma State is 111-for-123 in his career, a 90.2 percent rate that is the best in NFL history. In addition, Bailey is 35-for-38 on kicks from 40-49 yards.
10/20/14 - K Dan Bailey got leg-whipped following a third-quarter extra point against the Giants. However, the most accurate kicker in NFL history proved to be tough. Bailey nailed a 49-yard field goal with 59 seconds to play in the game. "I don't necessarily look at it from a make-or-miss standpoint," Bailey said. "Obviously, yeah, you're aware of the situations and what's going on. I think you have to be. But once you get out there, you put it on the back burner and just focus on going 1-for-1."
09/22/14 - K Dan Bailey set a franchise record with a 40-yard field goal against the Rams. It extended his streak of consecutive field goals to 28, breaking Chros Boniol's franchise record set in 1996.
09/15/14 - K Dan Bailey made four field goals against the Titans of 48, 44, 51 and 48 yards. He has now made 26 straight kicks, tying Chris Boniol for the second longest streak in team history. He is one shy of Boniol's record of 27 for the longest streak in team history.
08/05/14 - K Dan Bailey will get his first shot at the league's experimental 33-yard extra point Thursday in San Diego in the team's preseason opener.
"I was kind of surprised they lined up in the middle," Bailey said. "I figured most guys would spot it on the hash and kind of mess around with that. It's just one of those things where we're just going to have to deal with it the first two [preseason] games, and then obviously from there see what happens. I guess it's a good opportunity to practice 33-yard field goals is the way I'm looking at it.
"The whole principle of the matter, I think, is a little obscure," Bailey said. "If we're so good, I don't understand why that's a bad thing. I think you ask anybody that knows the game, it's not as easy as it looks. Yeah, a normal extra point is a 20-yard field goal, but I guarantee you of the 53 guys on the roster, there might be a handful that would be able to make that. It's definitely not as easy as it looks. If it does take hold and actually is adopted, you're going to see a lot of games, probably where it has a lot more impact on even decision-making as well as end-of-game situations."
