Michael Badgley will continue to handle field goals after his franchise record-setting performance last week, but Rose will be brought in in hopes of quelling the Pats return game. While Badgley has been money on field goals, he doesn't own the biggest leg on kickoffs.
In 10 games this season, Badgley averaged 61.7 yards on 54 kickoffs. Just nine of those 54 went for touchbacks, 16.7 percent, by far the fewest among kickers who booted 20-plus times. Badgley's 45 kickoff returns on the season were the most of any kicker, even those who booted all season.
In 2017, Rose earned 32 touchbacks on 47 kickoffs over 10 total games.
