Josh Brown

Three weeks ago, veteran NFL kicker Josh Brown was sitting at home watching the Sunday games from his home. After a solid nine-year career, Brown found himself in the unusual position of not making a roster out of training camp.

But then Brown won a tryout with the Cincinnati Bengals  to replace injured kicker Mike Nugent. In Brown’s first two games, he was a perfect five of five on field goal attempts. Nugent was cleared to play against the Steelers this week but the coaches decided to play Brown instead. Good decision.

With just :04 left on the clock, Brown nailed a 43-yard kick to not only give Cincinnati the 13-10 victory, but secure a playoff spot as well.

Brown was recently featured in the book Husker Legacy and part of the interview for that book was shared via Inspiring Athletes. “We serve a God that not only knows us inside out from before we were born, but He can also relate to us as men,” he said.
