He has only missed five kicks in two years in Nashville, but his 2013 season, in which he missed six field goals, got him run out of Kansas City. Fair to say he has turned it around.
Brett Kern is one of the better punters in the league. He got plenty of practice as he punted 88 times, 5.5 times per game. He averaged 47.4 yards per punt with a 40.3 net. He had 34 go inside the 20 and only had one touchback.
