Texans will stick with Randy Bullock

HOUSTON -- The Houston Texans tried out three kickers this week but are sticking with Randy Bullock.

Bullock missed three field goals on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, including a 55-yarder that would have tied the game as time expired.

"We’re going to continue to go with Randy," interim head coach Wade Philips said. "He certainly knows and we told him, and everybody else knows, he’s got to get it done. That’s the bottom line, is production. He started out poorly and started kicking really well. I think he got away from his technique a little bit last game and we feel like we can get him back to that."

The Wall Street Journal had an eye-opening statistic about kickers. Heading into Monday's game, NFL kickers this season have made 65.8 percent of all kicks 50 yards or longer. Overall, kickers had made 85.4 percent of their kicks.

Bullock's season percentage on all kicks is 61.9 percent. He hasn't made any of his four attempts from 50 yards or longer.
