Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski missed two more field goals on Sunday in Buffalo, to go with the potential game-winner he missed in Week 2. Are you worried?
The Boston Globe's Chris Gasper joined Michael Felger and Gary Tanguay on "Uno's Sports Tonight" to discuss what is suddenly a cause for concern.
"Do you bring somebody another kicker in?" asked Tanguay.
Said Gasper: "That would do more damage. You'd have him looking over his shoulder."
Gasper went on to say that it's still early in the season and the Gostkowski, who is 2-for-5 this season on field goal tries between 40 and 49 yards, needs to "kick his way out of it."

FOXBORO -- Ryan Allen was the definition of an x-factor on Thursday night against the Texans.
He punted seven times for an average of 47.6 yards per boot, and none of them were returned. A career-high six of his seven landed inside the 20-yard line, and the one that did not was marked right at the 20. He dropped his other punts at the 11, 10, 10, 14, 5 and 4-yard lines, helping to limit Houston's average starting field position to the 15-yard line.
Allen has won the award now twice in his career. He also took it home in 2014 following a Week 14 win over the Chargers.
It is the second AFC Player of the Week honor for a Patriots special teamer this year. Kicker Stephen Gostkowski picked it up after kicking the game-winning field goal against the Cardinals back in Week 1.
