  • Saints' Blake Grupe: Converts 30 field goals and 40 PATs

    Grupe knocked through 30 of 37 field-goal attempts and all 40 of his point-after-tries in 17 games during the 2023 season.

    Grupe hit two field-goal tries and all six PATs during the Saints' regular-season finale, thus wrapping up his rookie campaign with six straight made field goals. The undrafted product out of Notre Dame won New Orleans' starting kicker job over veteran Wil Lutz this preseason, and, while the rookie was far from perfect, he made a solid impression with 70 total kicking conversions. He also went 16-for-18 on field-goal tries of 39 yards or less. Grupe will look to improve his consistency as a long-range kicker during the 2024 season.

  • Saints' Blake Grupe: Perfect in Week 17 win

    Grupe converted on 3-for-3 field-goal attempts and 2-for-2 point-after tries during Sunday's 23-13 victory over Tampa Bay.

    Grupe made a significant impact for the first time since the Week 12 loss to Atlanta. The rookie out of Notre Dame went just 1-for-2 on field-goal tries over the previous four contests, but he converted three field goals of 28 to 45 yards Week 17. Grupe also remained perfect on his 33rd and 34th PATs of the season, and he has now converted 28 of 35 field-goal tries over the first 16 games of his career. He'll look to finish his rookie season strong when the Saints vie for a potential playoff spot with a Week 18 win versus Atlanta.

  • Saints' Blake Grupe: Makes two PATs in loss

    Grupe was 2-for-2 on point-after tries during Thursday's 30-22 defeat versus the Rams.

    Grupe did not have much on his shoulders Week 16, as the Saints crossed into the red zone only once during Thursday's loss. New Orleans also fell behind 17-7 at halftime, and this ballooned out to a 30-7 deficit early in the fourth quarter. These combined factors likely affected Grupe's chances for any field-goal tries. The undrafted rookie has now gone a perfect 32-for-32 on PATs this season. He'll look for more field-goal opportunities during the Week 17 divisional matchup versus Tampa Bay.

  • Saints' Blake Grupe: Hits 50-yarder in win

    Grupe made his only field goal attempt and all three of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 24-6 win against the Giants.

    Grupe converted a 50-yard field goal try to put the Saints up 17-6 late in the third quarter. This marked the rookie's sixth made field goal of 50-plus yards this season, and he's now gone 3-for-6 from this range over the past nine games. Across 14 contests this season, Grupe has converted 25 of 32 field-goal tries while also knocking through all 30 of PATs. He'll look to finish strong over the final three games of the year, starting with this Thursday's matchup versus the Rams.

  • Saints' Blake Grupe: Misses lone field-goal try Sunday

    Grupe missed his only field goal attempt but made all four of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 28-6 win versus the Panthers.

    Grupe went wide left on his lone field-goal attempt Sunday, marking his first miss within 29 yards or less this season. The undrafted rookie is now 24-for-31 on field-goal attempts this season, and he's gone 0-for-1 over the past two weeks. However, he did remain perfect on his point-after-tries, as he's now converted all 27 of his PATs this season. Grupe has also been dealing with a lingering groin issue that kept him questionable leading up Sunday morning. He'll look to overcome this issue once again when the Saints next play versus the Giants on Sunday, Dec. 17.

  • Saints' Blake Grupe: Will play Week 14

    Grupe (groin) is active for Sunday's game against Carolina.

    Grupe has been dealing with a groin injury over the past two weeks, but his ability to log a full practice all three days during Week 14 prep was a good indication that he'd be able to suit up. The rookie kicker knocked five field goals Week 12 against Atlanta, but his opportunities have otherwise been limited of late, as he's converted one or zero field goals in four of his past five contests.

  • Saints' Blake Grupe: Questionable for Sunday

    Grupe (groin) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Panthers, Matthew Paras of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Grupe was listed as a full practice participant Wednesday through Friday, but he'll take an injury designation into the weekend for the second game in a row nonetheless. The Saints waived kicker Austin Seibert from their practice squad Thursday, a likely indication that the team expects Grupe to be able to kick through the injury once again in Week 14.

  • Saints' Blake Grupe: Knocks in four extra-point tries

    Grupe went 4-for-4 on point-after tries during Sunday's 33-28 defeat to the Lions.

    Grupe continued to handle the Saints' kicking duties on both kickoffs and extra points/field goals after coming into the game questionable with a groin injury. The rookie out of Notre Dame has now knocked through all 23 of his PATs this season, and he's missed just six of 30 field-goal attempts through the first 12 games of his career.

  • Saints' Blake Grupe: Active for Week 13

    Grupe (groin) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Lions.

    Grupe was a limited participant at all three practices during Week 13 prep and was given a questionable designation, but the Saints didn't elevate Austin Seibert on Saturday, suggesting Grupe would be cleared to play. Grupe made five of six field-goal attempts versus Atlanta last week, and his lone miss came on a 54-yard try with just under 30 seconds remaining in the game. The rookie has made 24 of his first 30 field-goal attempts, with all six misses coming from beyond 40 yards.
