Carpenter finished the 2014 season with 133 points, good for sixth in NFL scoring. He made 34 of 38 field goals - including 6 of 8 from 50-plus - as well as 31 of 32 extra points.

Carpenter has now gone over the 130 mark two seasons in a row. Even though the team has a new coach in Rex Ryan, there's almost no chance Carpenter's going anywhere next season, as the team gave him a nice contract last offseason and his work remains quite strong. The weather in Buffalo will always be a disadvantage for Carpenter, but it's more than offset by his own skills plus the team's inability to find a quarterback that knows what to do in the red zone.
