NFL kickers so far this postseason have been beyond miserable. They're 15-26 so far, which is 57%. That's dreadful.

And yes, some kicks, like Nate Kaeding's 57-yarder, don't really fall into the traditional missed kick category. But his 35 and 40 yarders do. Same with Shane Graham terrible short field goal misses and Neil Rackers' 35-yard hook that never had a prayer.

So what's the problem with kickers this postseason? It seems to be pressure, pure and simple. Guys are just losing their marbles when it counts.
