Cundiff Ties Touchback Record

From the Baltimore Sun:

Reaching the NFL record for touchbacks was important to Billy Cundiff, but the Ravens kicker was shocked that fans were also aware of the accomplishment.

“It’s really strange to put the ball on the tee and have everybody go, ‘OK, we want this touchback,'” Cundiff said after the team’s 13-7 win against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. “I think they wanted it more than I did.”

With two touchbacks, Cundiff posted 40, tying the Minnesota Vikings’ Mitch Berger‘s single-season record set in 1994.

Cundiff, who has converted 26-of-29 field goals this season and earned the first Pro Bowl invite of his career last week, said he would likely consider the full breadth of seeing his name etched in the league’s record book after the season has ended.

Congratulations to Billy Cundiff on his outstanding accomplishment.
