News: Walsh converted both of his field goal attempts Sunday and also went 2-for-2 on extra points in Minnesota's win over Green Bay.
Impact: Walsh finished out the year having made 12 consecutive field goals dating back to Minnesota's Nov. 29 win over Atlanta and was a perfect 4-for-4 from 50+ yards in that span. He made a league-high 34 field goals this season and showed consistent ability to convert from long range as he converted 12-of-15 FGA from 40 yards or more, making him one of the more valuable kickers in 2015. Perhaps more importantly, Walsh demonstrated the ability to bounce back from a shaky 2014 season in which he converted a league-worst 74.3 percent of his field goals.
