LANDOVER -- Nick Novak's NFL career was drifting away, just like his kick.

The Washington Redskins kicker had just pushed his potential game-winning, 49-yard field goal wide right with 35 seconds left against the Dallas Cowboys. It could have been the last kick for the former Maryland star, who missed two field-goal attempts in Washington's previous game and has been released by four NFL teams.
