Michael Badgley misses field goal, first kicker ever to do so in Mexico City

The Chargers kicker has been off to a strong start since returning from injury, but came up short on a 40-yard attempt.

The Los Angeles Chargers have driven well on the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football in Week 11, but they’ve come up short of the end zone. The Chargers lead the game 3-0 but are leaving a lot of points off the scoreboard.

Kicker Michael Badgley converted a 27-yard field goal early in the first quarter, but later in the quarter he missed a 40-yard attempt. This was notable because it marked the first time any kicker had missed a field goal attempt in an NFL game at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. Kickers entered the game 15-of-15 in International Series games dating back to 2016.

Badgley entered the game five of six on field goals this season.
