The Dallas Cowboys were thrown for a loop during the second quarter of their win against the San Francisco 49ers. Their all-world kicker Dan Bailey suffered a groin injury and was immediately ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Coincidentally, Dan Bailey being injured was a storyline that rose to the top like cream last year when the Cowboys were in San Francisco. Bailey missed a field goal in that game due to the apparent back injury, and all week long the Cowboys auditioned kickers before their game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Dan Bailey winded up kicking against the Bengals, and Dallas didn’t bring anyone in as a potential form of duct tape. Part of this was because Bailey played, but part of it was because the Cowboys felt confident in their back up kicker – safety Jeff Heath.

That’s right. Jeff Heath, affectionately known as the GOAT on Twitter, has some kicking prowess to his athleticism. Heath actually kicked in high school and was recruited as a soccer player, but he obviously chose football and now operates as a Dallas Cowboy.

Whatever the case, the Cowboys needed a few kicks on Sunday in San Francisco, and Jeff Heath took them. He ended up 2/3 on extra point attempts, which really isn’t that bad. It’s also extremely rare!

The internet had a lot of fun with Heath the kicker, and in fact he picked up a fan in former Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee.

The non-football-playing McAfee now does a host of media things as a part of Barstool Sports, and he puts that hilarity to use when “analyzing” his fellow former colleagues. His analysis of Jeff Heath the kicker will leave you laughing.

The Cowboys visit the Washington Redskins next Sunday. If Dan Bailey can’t go, they’ll likely make some sort of roster move to adjust for him in the time being. As great as Jeff Heath is, it isn’t practical to roll with him on a regular basis.

Pat McAfee will have to say goodbye to Heath’s biceps.
