“It's always good to string some together and get in some kind of groove,” Bailey said. “Consistency is the name of the game. I just try to approach every game and every kick the same.”
In his third season with the Cowboys, Bailey has converted 90.4 percent of his field goals, including 93.0 percent the past two seasons (53-of-57).
“He does his job as well as anyone on our football team,” Garrett said. “He is very reliable.”
Bailey is almost automatic inside 47 yards.
On field goal attempts 46 yards or closer, Bailey is 53-of-55 in his career, a sizzling 96.4 percent. His only misses were a 35-yarder earlier this season against the Rams and a 21-yard chip shot early his rookie season at San Francisco, a game he made amends with a game-winner in overtime.
“I put a lot of emphasis on longer kicks in the offseason,” Bailey said. “I think that's definitely carrying over.”
