In a season in which points have been rather hard to come by, one player has done more than his fair share. In fact, the same player has done better than every other player at his position in the entire league. And that player is Mike Nugent.
Nugent has converted 27 of 29 field goals this season for a league-leading field goal percentage of 93.1-percent. Heading into the season, Nugent’s status was somewhat uncertain since he was recovering from knee surgery. But Nugent has performed extremely well and if Cincinnati does somehow make the playoffs, Nugent is a big reason why.
So here’s to you Mike Nugent.
Keep up the good work.
