Bailey still kicking: Kicker has made 19 in a row

Dan Bailey now holds the club record for consecutive field goals made by a rookie after connecting on a 42-yarder and a pair of 20-yarders Sunday.

Bailey, who has made 19 consecutive field-goal attempts, now sits third on the Cowboys' all-time list after passing Nick Folk and Richie Cunningham. Bailey trails only Chris Boniol, who made 27 consecutive kicks in 1996 and had 26 in a row in 1995.

Special teams coach Joe DeCamillis said he has a simple philosophy when it comes to coaching Bailey.

"Don’t mess with him,” he said. “Don’t coach him. Leave him alone.”

Gotta agree not sure why Buehler is still here. Im guess as injuries happen he falls closer to the bottom and will eventually be cut.

It's been said many times before....throw Buehler out the revolving door and get another decent player for either the Offense or Defense. Both could stand some improvement and Buehler is a wasted roster spot.
