Week Four Analysis: Last week Nate Kaeding was the only member of the Chargers to score points. The fact that he only managed to attempt and convert only one field goal is the sad part. The Chargers offense is certainly struggling right now, but when teams start to turn it around, they usually do so by crossing the 50, getting into field goal range and booting a few three-pointers. This week Kaeding faces off against an inconsistent Chiefs team that has allowed 4, 0 and 2 field goal attempts in their first three games of the season.
Week Two Analysis: Do you remember Nate Kaeding was gone for all but one play last year? Well he's trying to make up for lost time by doubling his output in 2012. In Week 1, Kaeding kicked an unbelievable five field goals and one PAT. The Titans defense allowed two field goals and four extra points to the Pats last weekend, and the Chargers probably have a little more trouble converting red zone opportunities to touchdowns.
Week One Analysis: Nate Kaeding basically missed the entire season after he tore his ACL in Week 1's opening kickoff. Prior to the injury he was one of the NFL's elite distance kickers, making 26 field goals from beyond 40 yards in 2009 and 2010. While a trip to the "Black Hole" in Oakland is less than ideal of a launch point, Kaeding is still a great play. In his last six matchups with the Raiders, Kaeding has converted all 16 extra points and has kicked 10 field goals.
