Bucs kicker Nick Folk will most likely be out of a job after his horrendous showing during Thursday night’s game against the Patriots.
Folk missed all three field goals he attempted as his nightmare 2017 campaign continued. He made only two of four kicks last week against the Giants, and with the Bucs losing Thursday’s game by a five-point margin, his misses loomed large.
Fans were not happy about Folk’s poor performance, and they let him know about it on Twitter.

The Bucs now have extended rest as they don’t play until the following Sunday when they take on the Cardinals in Arizona. There’s a very good chance they’ll be on the hunt for a new kicker to replace Folk, as the (2-2) team can’t afford any more costly mistakes.
