Wil Lutz: Perfect in divisional-round loss

Lutz connected on both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point attempts in the Saints' 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Wil Lutz: Misses field goal in Sunday's win

Lutz missed his only field-goal attempt and made all three of his extra-point attempts in the Saints' 21-9 win over the Bears on Sunday.

Analysis: After an uncharacteristically-inaccurate season, Lutz did little to allay concerns about his leg in Sunday's victory, failing to connect on his lone field-goal attempt of the afternoon. He'll need to be at his best in next week's NFC divisional matchup with the Buccaneers.

Wil Lutz: Makes two field goals

Lutz converted both of his field-goal attempts and three of four extra-point attempts the Saints' 33-7 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Analysis: He had a down year in 2020, and his 82 percent conversion rate on field-goal attempts matches the lowest mark of his career, set in his rookie season. Lutz's field-goal attempts were a career-low 28 thanks to the uber-efficient Saints offense, but he missed five of those tries. The young kicker will look to bounce back in 2021.

Wil Lutz: Nails three extra points

Lutz made all three of his extra-point attempts in the Saints' 32-29 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Analysis: The typically-accurate kicker had a disastrous performance Sunday, leaving six points on the table in a game the Saints lost by just a field goal. This marks the first time all season Lutz has missed a kick in back-to-back weeks, and he'll look to bounce back in an important Week 15 showdown with Kansas City.
