For all of his documented troubles regarding field-goal attempts of 50 yards or more, Billy Cundiff can take solace in the knowledge that he has been quite productive in the fourth quarter.
Since 2010, the Ravens kicker has connected on all 14 field goals he has made in the final period. He added to that streak with a 39-yarder with 3:10 left in an eventual 16-6 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving night.
Cundiff, who made all three field goals that he attempted Thursday night, said he understands that the onus is on him to convert field goals, especially in fourth quarters.
“That’s what I’m here for,” he said. “So for me, I really take pride in that, and I want to make sure that the team can look at me when the time is tight and the game’s on the line, and [the team can say,] ‘We know we can count on him to come through.’ That’s what I plan on doing, and I hope I can continue to do that.”
