Rocca’s Philadelphia Eagles today defeated the Minnesota Vikings 26 – 14, with Rocca punting four times for a net average of 44 yards and a longest punt of 58 yards. All Rocca’s punts were inside the 20 yard line.
The accuracy of the drop punt has really come to the fore with both punters using it effectively. If both were to be on winning teams next week they would find themselves going head to head in the NFC Championship match with the winner of that game headed into the Superbowl.
