Getting the boot: Kickers make a big impact in Week 1 (The Associated Press)

Matt Prater knocked his 43-yard field goal through to lift Detroit past Indianapolis, his 13th winning or tying field goal with under 4:00 to play in the fourth quarter or in overtime. Mike Nugent came through for Cincinnati against his former Jets team, and Graham Gano failed for Carolina vs. Denver. Five kickers botched 33-yard extra points, though four of their teams won.
