Stephen Gostkowski has his worst night ever, and manages to redeem himself

The Titans signed Stephen Gostkowski this past offseason, and for 99% of Monday, they wanted their money back.

UPDATE: Well, Stephen Gostkowski somehow redeemed himself. He got a shot with 17 seconds left and successfully kicked a 25-yard field goal to get the Titans an ugly 16-14 win over the Broncos. It was certainly something....

I’m not entirely sure what has happened to Titans kicker Stephen Gostkowski, but the former Patriots kicker is having a miserable debut with his new team. In the Week 1 Monday Night Football nightcap, Gostkowski has missed three field goals and an extra point. In 14 seasons with the Patriots, Gostkowski never missed more than five field goals in a single season.

The Titans lead 13-7 early in the fourth quarter, but it’s been in spite of their kicker. Tennessee entered this game as a field goal favorite, and for the time being they’re covering. However, they’ve left this game wide open for the Broncos to win.

Here’s some video of three of his misses.
