Assessing wind on kicker warmups
By Mike Reiss
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Kickers Justin Tucker (Ravens) and Stephen Gostkowski (Patriots) have concluded their pre-game warmups and the wind didn't appear to be much of a factor.
Tucker had the distance from 53 yards to the open end of the stadium, and looked like he had the distance from about 60 yards to the closed end. The wind didn't seem to be knocking his attempts down, as much as it was a situation where he was factoring in a draw.
Gostkowski had distance from a long of 53 to the closed end, and was a little bit shorter to the open end.
