Brett Maher has the yips, and Cowboys fans hope it doesn’t cost them a playoff game.

Last week Maher broke an NFL record when he missed four extra-point kicks.

Before Sunday’s divisional playoff game, Maher was shaky and missed several practice kick,s which led Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to give him a pep talk.

In his first kick of the game, Maher got blocked by the Niners defense,e but his kick looked like it was definitely going wide left.

Earlier this week, the Cowboys signed a backup kicker, and they might need to use him if Maher keeps having issues.

The Cowboys have signed kicker Tristan Vizcaino to the practice squad, adding a possible insurance policy in case the team wants to bring him to the game alongside Maher.

Vizcaino has been on four teams since 2020, including two different squads this season. He made two field goals and all three extra points in his one game with the Cardinals, and only handled kickoffs in a game played with the Patriots.
