Situation iffy beyond Week 3

Special teams coordinator Craig Aukerman said Thursday that the Titans are taking the kicking situation with Bullock and Sam Ficken (groin) "day-to-day," Terry McCormick of reports.

Analysis: Bullock made four of his five field-goal attempts during last week's contest against the Seahawks, including the game-winning kick, but his longer-term situation in Tennessee still remains unclear. Ficken is guaranteed to spend at least one more contest on IR, but once the Penn State product returns to full health, the Titans will have to make a decision between he and Bullock. In any case, Bullock is set to draw at least one more start versus the Colts on Sunday.

Hits game-winning kick

Bullock made four of his five field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Seahawks.

Analysis: Bullock made his Titans' debut and likely did enough to stick around on the active roster. Though he missed a 44-yard field goal at the end of the third quarter with the team down seven, he converted kicks from 24, 30, 33 and 36 yards -- the last of which served as the game-winning points in overtime. The Titans' offense got on track in Week 2, and Bullock could see plenty of opportunity once again in Week 3 against the Colts.

Signs with active roster

The Titans promoted Bullock to the active roster Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: The Titans cut Micahel Badgley on Monday after he missed a field goal and an extra point in Week 1. Bullock played 12 games last year and connected on 21 of 26 field-goal attempts and 24 of 25 extra-point tries.

Joins Titans' practice squad

Bullock was added to the Titans' practice squad Saturday, Paul Kuharsky of reports.

Analysis: Bullock failed to make the Lions' 53-man roster to begin the season, but he'll attempt to make an impact with Tennessee's practice squad. The 31-year-old appeared in 12 games for the Bengals last year and converted on 80.8 percent of his field-goal attempts.

Sent packing by Detroit

The Lions released Bullock on Tuesday.

Analysis: Fellow kicker Zane Gonzalez suffered the same fate, leaving Detroit without a kicker for the time being. The team now will scour the free-agent market for a new placekicker.

Job battle may extend into preseason

Bullock's competition with Matthew Wright for the starting kicking job may not be decided until the preseason, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Analysis: Detroit has an opening at kicker after letting Matthew Prater leave for Arizona. Whereas Bullock is a nine-year veteran with decent leg strength and a serviceable 83.2 percent career field-goal conversion rate, Wright is entering his third year with just three games of experience but he was perfect on all four of his field goals and all seven of his PATs last year with Pittsburgh. However, it may not matter much who wins this job, as no fantasy manager should be interested in the kicker for what will likely be one of the lowest-scoring offenses in the league.

Finalizing deal with Lions

The Lions and Bullock are finalizing a contract that is expected to be done by Thursday night, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Detroit didn't waste any time identifying a contingency plan after long-time kicker Matt Prater inked a two-year deal to join the Cardinals on Wednesday. Matthew Wright, the only kicker currently on the Lions' roster, has four career field-goal attempts to his name. The soon-to-be 25-year-old has converted on all four tries, but Bullock would bring with him the experience of 202 career kicks. Detroit would foreseeably be making a horizontal move in transitioning to Bullock, as his 83.2 percent conversion rate is identical to that of Prater.

Inactive for finale

Bullock (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus Baltimore, Ben Baby of reports.

Analysis: It's the fourth straight healthy scratch for the 31-year-old, who's fallen out of favor as Cincinnati's kicker. Bullock went 21-for-26 on field goals and 24-for-25 on PATs in 12 games this season. Austin Seibert will continue handling kicking duties for the Bengals on Sunday.

Jan 3, 2021 9:10 AM EST

Sitting out Week 16

Bullock (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Texans, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Analysis: Bullock will continue to be a healthy scratch, and Austin Seibert will operate as the Bengals' starting kicker for the time being.

Dec 27, 2020 8:45 AM EST

Scratched for MNF

Bullock (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game versus the Steelers, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Analysis: Bullock is a healthy scratch in favor of Austin Seibert once again. Eliminated from the playoffs, the Bengals are giving Seibert a trial run to close out the season. Seibert made his lone extra-point attempt in last week's loss to the Cowboys.

Dec 21, 2020 3:53 PM EST

Will sit out again

Austin Seibert will get the start ahead of Bullock again in Week 15 against the Steelers, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Seibert only had one extra point attempt in this week's loss to the Cowboys, so the Bengals want to give him another chance. They know what they have in Bullock, so it makes sense to see if Seibert can do any better.

Dec 14, 2020 7:45 PM EST

Benched for Week 14

Bullock (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys, Ben Baby of reports.

Analysis: The 30-year-old missed a 53-yard try last Sunday in a loss to the Dolphins, dropping him to an 80.8 percent conversion rate on the 2020 campaign -- Bullock's worst success rate since his first active NFL season of 2013. Former Brown, Austin Seibert, gets the start at kicker in Bullock's place for Week 14.

Dec 13, 2020 8:50 AM EST

Hits one extra point

Bullock missed his lone field-goal attempt but made his only extra-point try in Sunday's 19-7 loss to the Dolphins.

Analysis: Bullock tried a 53-yard field goal with 1:00 remaining in the second quarter, but he pushed it wide left. The Bengals didn't cross midfield again until their final drive of the game, which eventually ended with an interception. Bullock's accuracy is a major concern, having missed two of his last five field-goal tries. However, the larger concern is that the offense doesn't have a pulse without Joe Burrow (knee), and now Brandon Allen (chest) could miss some time. Next week's game against the Cowboys is favorable for any offense, but Bullock is tough to depend on in fantasy settings.

Dec 7, 2020 8:31 AM EST

Bounces back with perfect outing

Bullock made a 44-yard field-goal attempt and two extra-point tries in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: This may be the story of the Bengals' offense in a post-Joe Burrow world, as they crossed the 50-yard line just twice all afternoon. A 103-yard kick return provided Bullock one of his two extra points Sunday, and he was good from 44 yards in the second quarter. It'll be tough to depend on Bullock moving forward, especially against Miami's fierce defense in Week 13.

Nov 30, 2020 8:53 AM EST

Misfires twice in loss

Bullock made just one of three field-goal attempts and missed his only extra-point try in Sunday's 20-9 loss to Washington.

Analysis: Bullock was perfect over the previous three games, but Sunday was ugly for the veteran kicker, although he did connect on a 53-yarder in the second quarter. The 30-year-old's job security is surely in question once again, but if he keeps his job, he'll need to calibrate before a Week 12 matchup against the Giants. His upside took a hit in this game, however, as the offense figures to slow down without quarterback Joe Burrow (torn ACL) in the picture.

Nov 23, 2020 9:40 AM EST

Nails pair of kicks

Bullock made a 37-yard field goal and his lone extra-point attempt in Sunday's 36-10 loss to the Steelers.

Analysis: Bullock's opportunities were scare, as the Bengals crossed midfield just twice all game. He was perfect once again, however, and he's been impressive all year, connecting on 19 of 21 field-goal attempts, including eight from beyond 40 yards, and all 21 extra-point tries. Bullock is now 11th in the league with 79 total points.

Nov 16, 2020 12:49 PM EST

Converts all five kicks

Bullock made his lone field-goal attempts and all four extra-point attempts during Sunday's 31-20 win over the Titans.

Analysis: The 30-year-old put the Bengals on the board with a 33-yard field goal during the first quarter, and he came through on all four PATs for a modest seven-point outing. Bullock has strong numbers at the halfway point of the season, going 18-for-20 on field-goal attempts and 20-for-20 on extra-point attempts, though a matchup with Pittsburgh in Week 9 could spell trouble for the Cincinnati offense.

Nov 2, 2020 10:23 AM EST

Rings up 10 points

Bullock made both field-goal attempts and all four extra points in Sunday's 37-34 loss to the Browns.

Analysis: Bullock connected on a 37-yard field goal in the second quarter and converted a chip shot from 23 yards out on the first drive of the second half. Rookie quarterback Joe Burrow has reinvigorated this offense and continuously puts the team in scoring position, but the Bengals struggle to convert in the red zone, finding paydirt on just 50 percent of trips, 29th in the league. That bodes well for Bullock, who has made at least two field goals in six of seven games thus far. He'll look to keep it up Week 8 against the Titans, who have allowed 25.5 points per game this year.

Oct 26, 2020 9:55 AM EST

Misses field goal Sunday

Bullock went 2-for-3 on field goals and converted three extra points Sunday against the Colts.

Analysis: Bullock missed his first field goal since Week 1, as he hit the right upright on a 48-yard attempt. However, he was able to knock through attempts from 47 and 55 yards out. He also remains perfect on extra-point tries this season, improving to 12-for-12 on the year.

Oct 20, 2020 8:39 PM EST

Makes lone kick

Bullock made a 38-yard field goal -- his lone attempt -- in Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Ravens.

Analysis: Bullock hit three or more field goals in three straight games entering Week 5, but the game didn't work in his favor Sunday. In the first half, the Bengals made it into Ravens' territory twice, turning it over on downs once and losing a fumble once. They didn't make it past the 50-yard line again until their final drive when Bullock hit a 38-yard field goal. It was an incredibly disappointing game for Bullock and the Bengals, and they have another tough matchup against the Colts on tap in Week 6.
