FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski appeared to experience troubles at both ends of the field during pregame attempts at Gillette Stadium as the ball did not carry well at either end.
To the closed end, with the wind and where the ball tends to carry better, Gostkowski connected from 49 yards, then made his second attempt from 53 (the first came up short).
At the open end of the stadium, Gostkowski missed from 48 and two attempts at 50 (the first short, the second wide).
The ball doesn't seem to be carrying well in the cold with Baltimore kicker Billy Cundiff experiencing similar troubles at both ends (Cundiff appeared to miss attempts from 49 and 53 to the closed end, coming up short from both distances).
