Misses 56-yard attempt in OT

Carlson converted two of three field-goal attempts and added four extra points in Sunday's 40-34 overtime win over the Seahawks.

Analysis: Carlson finally missed from 50-plus for the first time this season at quite an inopportune time when his 56-yard attempt sailed wide right to end the Raiders' first overtime possession, but the defense managed to force Seattle into an immediate three-and-out to ultimately set up Josh Jacobs' game-winning run. Carlson has missed a field-goal attempt in back-to-back weeks now, but he's still 23 of 25 on the season for a 92-percent success rate.

Rebounds from 46-yard miss

Carlson made three of four field-goal attempts and converted his only extra-point try in Sunday's 22-16 overtime win over the Broncos.

Analysis: Carlson missed his first field-goal attempt since Week 9 of the 2021 season when his 46-yard effort sailed wide right in the early stages of the second quarter. However, he rebounded from the rare mistake in a massive way with connections from 52, 57 and 25 yards in the second half to ultimately send the Raiders to overtime. Carlson hadn't made, nor even attempted three field goals in a game since Week 5 prior to Sunday's victory.

Adds pair of extra points

Carlson converted two extra-point attempts in Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: Carlson has attempted just three total field goals across four games since the Raiders' bye week, so the team hopefully finds more opportunities for Carlson to showcase his range Week 11 in Denver.

Makes two 38-yarders in loss

Carlson booted a pair of 38-yard field goals and converted two point-after attempts in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Jaguars.

Analysis: Carlson remains perfect on field-goal attempts this season as he rebounded Sunday from a zero-point showing in Week 8 when the Raiders were shut out by the Saints. He'll hope for Las Vegas' offense to get back on track Week 10 with the Colts in town.

Spectator in Week 8

Carlson did not register any point-after tries or field-goal attempts during Las Vegas' 24-0 loss at New Orleans on Sunday.

Analysis: Besides sending the second-half kickoff into the end-zone for a touchback, Carlson did not participate in a game where the Raiders came in as road favorites and were subsequently shut out by 2021 second-rounder Pete Werner and company. For his part, Carlson has been basically automatic this season, converting on all 16 of his field-goal attempts and 13-of-14 point-after tries, but he'll need his offense to find more success in order to have a chance at bouncing back in Week 9 when his team travels to Jacksonville.

Nails 50-yarder in win

Carlson made his only field-goal attempt from 50 yards and he added five extra points in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Carlson is now a perfect 5-for-5 on 50-plus yard field goals this season, and he's yet to miss a field-goal attempt from any distance through the Raiders' first six games. He'll be kicking indoors at New Orleans in Week 8 as he looks to extend this impressive run of reliability.

Adds to league-leading point total

Carlson made all three of his field-goal attempts and converted a pair of extra-point tries in Monday's 30-29 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Carlson was good from 47, 50 and 53 yards as he remains automatic on field-goal attempts this season, still without a miss since Week 9 of the 2021 campaign. He currently paces the NFL in points with 53 through five games as the Raiders head into their bye week.

Racks up 14 points in win

Carlson made all four of his field-goal attempts and converted two of three extra-point tries in Sunday's 32-23 win over the Broncos.

Analysis: Carlson missed an extra point after the Raiders scored their first defensive touchdown since 2019, but he's now a perfect 12 for 12 on field-goal attempts through the first four games of the season. He'll look to remain a reliable fantasy asset at Kansas City in Week 5 on Monday Night Football.

Kicks three field goals Sunday

Carlson converted all three of his field-goal attempts and added an extra point in Sunday's 24-22 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Carlson remained perfect on the season and he's now produced 21 total points over the past two weeks, though he didn't attempt any field goals longer than 35 yards Sunday. He'll look to maintain the early momentum back home indoors against the Broncos in Week 4.

The Raiders are now slated to host the Cardinals in a Week 2 matchup that could have the highest game total on the Sunday slate.

Nails OT winner

Carlson converted all five of his field-goal attempts and added two extra points in Sunday's 35-32 overtime win over the Chargers.

Analysis: Carlson had one of the best games of his entire career on Sunday Night Football as he ultimately sent the Chargers home without a playoff berth, thanks in part to multiple 40-plus yard makes in overtime alone as the Raiders advance to play in Cincinnati on Saturday. Carlson wraps up his stellar 2021 regular season with a career-high 40 field goals made on 43 attempts, also tallying 30 extra points on 33 tries.

Analysis: Carlson converted from 24 and 40 yards prior to draining a game-winning 48-yarder as time expired. Monday's performance added to another superb campaign from Carlson, who has missed merely six of 61 total attempts thus far.

Raiders-Browns moved to Monday

Carlson and the Raiders will no longer play the Browns on Saturday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Monday at 5 p.m. ET.

Analysis: Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within the Cleveland organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Browns will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. Assuming the Week 15 game is played Monday as planned, Carlson and Las Vegas will face a quick turnaround for its Week 16 contest versus the Broncos, which is still expected to be played Sunday, Dec. 26 as scheduled.

Misses XP in Kansas City

Carlson made his only field-goal attempt from 26 yards in Sunday's 48-9 loss to the Chiefs, but he also missed an extra-point try.

Analysis: A failed extra point in Arrowhead Stadium is not what the Raiders wanted to see after inking Carlson to a four-year, $18.4 million contract extension earlier in the week, but the Auburn product still improved to 28 of 31 on field-goal attempts this season. Carlson's job might not get any easier Week 15, however, as windy conditions potentially await in Cleveland on Saturday afternoon.

Dec 13, 2021 1:19 AM EST

Agrees to extension

Carlson has agreed to a four-year, $18.4 million extension with the Raiders, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Carlson becomes the NFL's third-highest paid kicker with the deal, which includes a $4 million signing bonus and $10.2 million in guarantees. He has established himself as one of the most accurate kickers since 2018, as he's connected on 95 of his 108 field-goal attempts. So far in 2021, Carlson has made 27 of his 30 field goals, including five kicks from more than 50 yards.

Dec 8, 2021 6:21 PM EST

Trio of field goals in loss
