Forbath kicked field goals of 45 and 42 yards in the first half against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Garrett Hartley had kicked 16 straight for New Orleans.

He was Washington's choice after Billy Cundiff missed 5 of 12 attempts to start the season. Forbath won an off-day tryout over retread veterans Olindo Mare and Josh Brown.

Forbath won the Lou Groza Award as the nation's top kicker as a junior at UCLA in 2009.
