Walsh made 1-of-2 field goal attempts, missing from 44 yards, in Monday's loss to San Francisco. After going just 5-of-11 on field goals in the preseason, he appeared to lose the confidence of head coach Mike Zimmer. "He didn't kick very good in pregame," Zimmer told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "I don't know, he hit 28 out of 28 in practice last week, so he's got to carry it to the game ... it's worrisome."

Walsh missed three field goals in Sunday's loss to Detroit. He missed from 53 and 68 yards and also had a 26-yard attempt blocked. He did make both extra point attempts.

Walsh was 12-of-15 in his career from 50 yards or more in his first two seasons, but is just 5-of-9 this season. It's hard to fault him with missing a 68-yard field goal and the blocked attempt wasn't his miscue, so we wouldn't be overly worried. However, he's now made one of his last six field goal attempts.
