There were some concerns about Cowboys kicker Shaun Suisham going into the playoffs and with good reason. In his only playoff appearance, 2007 with the Redskins, he was wide left on a 30-yarder.

But on Saturday night, Suisham made field goals of 25 and 48 yards in the wild card win over the Eagles.

Makes the Cowboys almost forget about Nick Folk, who led the NFL with 10 missed field goals.

Kickers were at the forefront of some bad misses on Sunday.

Arizona's Neil Rackers shanked a 34-yarder that would have given the Cardinals the lead over the Packers in the closing moments. Arizona would go on to win that game in overtime.

Earlier on Sunday, Cincinnati kicker Shayne Graham missed field goals of 35 and 28 yards. Now, the New York Jets were beating the Bengals pretty good but one of Graham's misses would have cut the deficit to seven.
