Walsh made all three field goal attempts, including a 55-yard attempt, in Sunday's loss to the Bills. He also made all three extra point attempts.

Walsh converted one field goal attempt and one extra point attempt in Thursday's 42-10 loss to the Packers.

In a game thoroughly dominated by Green Bay, the Vikings didn't move the ball into Packers territory until the fourth quarter, so Walsh didn't have much of a chance to make an impact. The offense should be more dynamic once Teddy Bridgewater returns, but Minnesota may again struggle to find any traction against a staunch Lions defense in Week 6.

Walsh's only field goal attempt in Sunday's loss to New England was blocked. He did make his only extra point attempt.

It was hard to blame Walsh for the block as the offensive line allowed Chandler Jones to break free for the block which he returned for a touchdown.

Walsh made both field goal attempts, from 52 and 46 yards, and all four extra points in Sunday's win at St. Louis.

After missing a few field goal attempts in the preseason, Walsh showed off his long-range accuracy in Sunday's game. However, a bigger test comes when he moves outdoors in the Vikings' temporary home at the University of Minnesota's outdoor stadium.

Walsh has missed both field goal attempts over 50 yards this preseaon and missed an extra point.

Walsh is moving from a dome to an outdoor stadium this season as the Vikings play two seasons at the University of Minnnesota's outdoor stadium while their new stadium is being built. Walsh has been outstanding from long range in his career (12-for-15 over 50 yards), but his early misses from long range in two home games are raising concerns he won't fare as well outdoors. He's in no risk of losing his starting job, however.

Vikings K Blair Walsh (hamstring) was held out of Thursday's practice.

The injury is to Walsh's plant leg, and is the same issue he played through in Week 7. Barring a setback, he'll start Monday night's game against the Giants.
