Brett Maher missed four straight extra points for the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night.
Fortunately for them, it didn’t matter in a 31-14 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But Dallas is playing it safe heading into the NFC Divisional Round against the San Francisco 49ers.
The Cowboys plan to keep Maher. But, as an insurance policy, they signed Tristan Vizcaino to their practice squad on Wednesday, the team announced.
