The Bengals will not work out any other kickers this week.

EDGE Analysis

This despite yet another extra-point miss by Nugent, again to the right side. The takeaway from this can be either that the Bengals don't think that there's a better alternative out there, or that they've just given up trying.

The Bengals will stick with Nugent for Week 12's game against the Ravens, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nugent's two costly misses weren't enough for him to lose his job, in part because the Bengals looked at the free agent market and found it wanting, much as they did two weeks ago.

Nugent missed both extra point attempts in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Bills, both going off to the right.

EDGE Analysis

The misses were extremely costly - the Bengals were down four points on their final drive and got to the Bills' 30 yard line, but only had time to throw it up for grabs on the last play, rather than attempting a potential game-winning field goal. Nugent's other missed extra-point on the season came in the London game against the Redskins, in which they might have instead won instead of going into overtime. Two weeks ago the team tried out other kickers, but opted to stick with Nugent. He might not be so lucky this time.

Nugget missed a 51-yard field goal attempt and an extra point in the Bengals' Week 8 tie against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

The missed extra point was especially costly, as it allowed the Redskins to tie the game late in the fourth quarter with a field goal. It was his first missed extra point this season, but Nugent is now 14-for-19 on field goal attempts. All five misses have been from 40 yards or longer.

Nugent was perfect on three field goal attempts in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

The problem for the Bengals was that Nugent had to have those three attempts in the first place, with two of those coming from less than 30 yards. The Steelers shut down the deep ball and tightened up in the red zone, leaving the Bengals to settle for three points instead of seven.

Nugget hit three of four field goal attempts, including the 47-yard game-winner in Sunday's Week 1 victory over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

The one miss for Nugent was from long distance, just pushed to the right. After a rough preseason, Nugent bounced back with a good performance in Week 1, though his kickoffs still left a little to be desired.

Nugent has missed three field goal attempts so far in the preseason, though his competition in camp has been hurt, Bengals.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nugget might see a push from Zach Hocker on Sunday against Jacksonville. Hocker has been out the last two games with a strained tendon in his plant foot. Nugget has been serviceable but never really outstanding as a field goal kicker in his tenure with the team, though he's added to his value with his ability on kickoffs.

Nugent made all four extra point attempts and his only field goal opportunity in Sunday night's loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The field goal was a bit of a bitter fruit for the team, however. It came in lieu of a touchdown on the Bengals' final drive, and allowed the Cardinals enough time to drive down and score the game-winning field goal. Nugent is now 14-of-17 on field goal attempts this season.

Nugent kicked a 42-yard field goal in overtime to complete the Bengals' comeback win over the Seahawks on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Nugent's game-winner was banked off the left upright. He earlier tied the game in regulation as time ran out. He's 5-for-7 on field goals this season, and 17-for-18 on extra points.
