Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker is one of the best at his position in the NFL but he was having a rough time trying to do his job in Week 18.
There’s no one around the league who doesn’t respect Harrison Butker for the job he does as the Kansas City Chiefs kicker. He’s a veteran who has been incredibly reliable and consistent at a job that, frankly, you see that less and less often for many NFL franchises.
Unfortunately, he was having trouble just staying on his feet on Saturday in Week 18 as the Chiefs finished off the regular season against the rival Broncos in Denver.
With some sloppy conditions on the field, Butker kept ending up on his backside when trying to kick, whether that was while kicking off or attempting field goals during warm-ups.

Though it’s a hilarious scene to watch someone try to do arguably the most routine part of their job and keep, quite literally, falling flat on their back, it should be noted that this could be a bit dangerous.
With those types of slick conditions, it could be easy for Butker or any kicker to potentially injure themselves by planting their leg hard and having it slide out from under them in a bad way.
Thankfully, that didn’t seem to be the case with Butker, which means we can all keep chuckling at the Chiefs kicker making the kicking game just a little bit more physically taxing than it normally is.
