Brett Maher Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys had an extremely impressive win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, ultimately shutting down Kirk Cousins and company en route to a dominant 40-3 victory. Dallas was clicking on all cylinders in all facets of the game, including a monster performance from kicker Brett Maher.

Maher had a perfect performance on Sunday, nailing all four of his field goals along with four extra points in the game, including a monster 60-yard field goal just before halftime.

This was good enough to net him 29 fantasy points in standard-scoring fantasy football leagues, which was a historic mark for any kicker.

According to ESPN’s Field Yates, Maher’s 29 fantasy points are the second-most in NFL history, only behind Jay Feely, who put up 29.5 fantasy points in 2010.

Maher is in his second stint with the Cowboys this season after leaving briefly for the New Orleans Saints last season, and he really seems to be hitting his stride this time around in Dallas.

He’s been very reliable thus far this year for the Cowboys, hitting 15-of-17 field goal attempts on the season.

The Cowboys’ victory was a huge statement that they’re real contenders in the NFC this season, beating a Vikings team that previously was tied with the Philadelphia Eagles for the best record in the NFL.

They will look to build on this momentum in a quick turnaround next week for a Thanksgiving afternoon game against the New York Giants.
