Cowboys rookie kicker makes history with two booming kicks

Rookie kicker Brandon Aubrey is quickly emerging as a weapon for the Dallas Cowboys.

During the Cowboys Week 14 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles on “Sunday Night Football,” Aubrey stayed perfect on the season while making incredible NFL history only a handful of games into his career.

Aubrey nailed consecutive field goals of 60 and 59 yards, becoming the first kicker in league history to boot two field goals of 59-plus yards in the same game.

Aubrey’s 60-yarder ties him for fourth on the franchise’s all-time list of longest field goals, trailing only Brett Maher, who owns the three longest, 63 and 62 yards (twice).

A former first-round pick of the MLS’ Toronto FC, Aubrey’s transition to American football has been seamless. Following his pair of history-making field goals, Aubrey is now a perfect 28-for-28 on the year.
