Bills_Dan_Carpenter_2013 [2]Kicker Dan Carpenter, during his five seasons with the Dolphins, slowly grew from guarded, one-sentence replies to the media to letting his quiet confidence and dry humor show.

But Carpenter’s no old-school Hurricane-style trash-talker nor is he one to deal in heavy emotion.

So after booting three field goals, including the 31-yard game-winner with 36 seconds left, for Buffalo against the Dolphins team that cut him in August, Carpenter eschewed the verbal slam dunk. He didn’t point out he went 3 for 3 in the 23-21 Dolphins loss while his Dolphins successor, Caleb Sturgis, missed his only attempt, a 51-yarder.
