Jake Elliott didn’t miss a field-goal attempt inside of 30 yards in his first three seasons, but has gone 1-for-3 on those kicks this season.

“First and foremost, I just want to say that it’s frustrating,” Elliott said yesterday. “I would say that from the other day, it’s embarrassing, for a lack of a better term. I’d say it’s frustrating because I feel like, especially that day, I was hitting the ball really well. I think you guys probably saw that on the other kicks. But my profession, If you’re not perfect, it’s a bad day. And so it was a bad day.”

Elliot said his struggles with shorter kicks don’t have anything to do with a mechanical change specifically for chip shots.

“I go out there and I approach them all the same way,” said Elliott, who missed a 22-yarder Sunday. “Obviously I’m not trying to go out there and miss the shorter ones. But I think … maybe it’s me just kind of finishing my swing too soon and looking up knowing it is one of those shorter kicks.”
