I can't think of a single pressure kick Succop has ever missed to be perfectly honest.
Succop nailed GW FGs against Pittsburgh (09), Buffalo (10) and San Diego (11) in his career.
He also made a 52-yard field goal against the Panthers last season that basically sealed a win late in the 4th.
And he's had at LEAST 4 games where the Chiefs only won because he made every kick in the game out of 4 or 5 attempts. Washington in 09, Minnesota and Green Bay in 2011, New Orleans in 2012.
He did miss a FG against the Steelers last year that would have given us a lead, but he also forced OT in that game with a late FG.
In pressure situations, he's done pretty well.
He is far from the kicker that shall go unnamed.
