Jake Elliott has only been in the NFL for three years, but he’s already a legend in Philly because he beat the Giants with a 61-yard walk-off field goal in Week 3.
Elliott then capped off his rookie year in 2017 with a 3-for-3 showing in Philly’s 41-33 win over the Patriots Super Bowl LII.
Of course, being a kicker in the NFL is all about what you’ve done lately, and Elliott has done plenty.
During the 2019 season, the Eagles kicker started the year by making 14 straight field goals, which set a franchise record.
Although Elliott did hit a lull late in the season when he missed four field goals over a four week span (Weeks 13 thru 16), the 25-year-old bounced back nicely in the playoffs.
During the Eagles’ 17-9 wild-card loss to Seattle, Elliott scored all of Philly’s points with three field goals. Elliott’s field goal and extra point conversion rate has improved every year that he’s been in the league, so the thinking here is that he’s only going to get better from here on out.
