When the season began Alex Henery was the second-most accurate kicker in NFL history at 87.9 percent.

Three games later we’re wondering about his job security.

Such is life for placekickers.

Henery the Eagles’ third-year kicker from Nebraska has missed field goal attempts in consecutive games for the first time in his career.

They haven’t been easy kicks -- 46 yards against the Chargers 48 yards against the Chiefs -- but they have raised the issue of whether the Eagles can rely on Henery to make big kicks at big moments moving forward.

After making 24 of 27 kicks as a rookie and 22 of his first 23 attempts last year Henery was 46 for 50 and atop the all-time NFL accuracy list among kickers with 50 or more attempts at 92 percent.

Since then he’s missed 5 of 14 field goal attempts dropping to 55 for 64 overall. That’s still 86.2 percent and that’s still pretty good. Henery is now No. 5 on the NFL’s all-time accuracy list.

But he is dropping.

In the San Diego game the Eagles trailed 13-10 when Henery missed wide right from 46 yards just before halftime. They ended up losing by three.

On Thursday night the Chiefs led 16-9 late in the third quarter when Henery missed wide left from 48 yards. The Chiefs took advantage of the short field and drove 62 yards for a touchdown that gave them a 14-point lead.

“Yeah it was a longer kick but I just pulled it a little bit and took it left” Henery said. “That’s one kick I should make. It’s a kick I tell myself I should make. It was in my range.
