Buffalo Bills place-kicker Rian Lindell hasn't had any work so far this year, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been busy during the first two games.
The Bills are the only team in the NFL that hasn't attempted a field goal so far. The Bills have nine touchdowns, the most in the league through two games. Every time the Bills get in scoring range, Lindell gets up and kicks into a net on the sideline to get ready for a potential field-goal try.
"Actually, I'm probably sometimes kicking more because they've been down there more," Lindell said. "Every time they cross the 50, I get ready. Yeah, I don't get that extra kick in the game. If I haven't kicked in awhile, then as soon as they get the ball then I may kick a couple. But in a normal situation, usually when they get to the 50, then I'll kick. Usually three or four kicks, it depends on how I feel."
Lindell added, "If they’re going to score four or five touchdowns a game, I can't argue with that." But he is eager to get going on some field goals.
"That first one, you always want to start well and get the train moving," he said.
