In Preseason Opener Stephen Gostkowski’s Name is Misspelled On Jersey

Stephen Gostkowski has been playing in the NFL for 14 years. He is the Patriots’ all-time leader by a mile in both field goals made and extra points made. He’s won three Super Bowls and played in three more.

The man is pretty famous. One would think.

Yet Gostkowski took the field Thursday night in Detroit sporting a wrongly spelled last name on his back. Rather than “GOSTKOWSKI,” the kicker’s jersey read “GOSTOWSKI.”

Possibly the different weight on his back contributed to the veteran kicker missing a 37-yard field goal try wide right before halftime.

The preseason is all about working out the twists from the offseason and getting ready for the games that actually count. That is seemingly true for the equipment managers, too.
