A 50 plus yard FG isn't something you want to rely on to win a game, especially when you're away and had the lead the whole game.

We had great field position after the Rams missed their long attempt in OT, but our offense didn't do much with it and left a lot to be desired with our last possession leading to the missed FG by Akers. Could the offense have helped put him in a better position to succeed? Hell yeah, unfortunately they failed.
Tell that to the Rams.
If you have a kicker who can make 50 plus yard FG's, actually you can. For that matter, if you have a kicker who can make one from 40 yards away, it actually helps, too.
