Alex Henery kicking great for the Eagles despite team's woes

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

From Reuben Frank of CSN Philly: The Philadelphia Eagles have a lot of problems, but kicker Alex Henery isn't one of them.

It’s pretty lame when your team MVP could be a 175-pound placekicker, but Henery has been nearly perfect this year and really since he got here as a rookie fourth-round pick out of Nebraska last year.

"Just been hitting the ball well," Henery said. "I feel like we’ve been in a real good rhythm with Mat (McBriar, holder) and Jon (Dorenbos, snapper). So I’ve been happy with how I’m hitting it, and it’s been going through."

Henery missed his second field goal attempt on opening day in Cleveland and has made 19 straight kicks since, breaking the franchise record of 17 consecutive field goals set by David Akers during his 2001 Pro Bowl season and matched last year by Henery.

For the rest of Frank's story on Henery, head over to CSN Philly.
