Ka'imi Fairbairn perfect 5-for-5 in Texans win


That's how Ka'imi Fairbairn described the weather conditions at MetLife Stadium on Saturday. The same could be said for the Texans kicker, who successfully made all five of his field goals, in Houston's 29-22 win over the New York Jets.

"He did a great job," head coach Bill O'Brien said after the game. "Fairbairn has been such a consistent guy for us, really since the day he walked in. you know, we really have a lot of trust in him. He's come up big for us. You talk about the poise of Deshaun, well Ka'imi Fairbairn has great poise. Nothing fazes him. He's really a neat guy and we're lucky he's our kicker."

Fairbairn scored 17 points on five field goals from 41, 32, 53, 49 and 40 yards, including both of his extra point attempts. The third-year specialist currently leads the NFL in total points scored this season with 136 and field goals made this season with 34.

"It was a grind-it-out win," Fairbairn said. "We got the W and that's the most important thing and I got to give credit to the guys that don't get enough credit: Jon Weeks and Trevor Daniel for holding, all the blockers. It's a team effort and it was a great team win."

Fairbairn has successfully made his last 12 field goal attempts from Weeks 12 through 15.

Warmed up and ready to go. The Texans take on the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium for Week 15.
