Parkey's FG miss that cost game officially changed to block

  • Eagles beat Bears 16-15

In an attempt to thank Cody Parkey for missing the Bears' potential game-winning field goal, Eagles fans are sending the kicker money through Venmo.

The snap went down, the kick went up, and the hearts of Chicago fans sank around the country. Bears head coach Matt Nagy had an epic reaction to the missed kick, as did the team's mascot - who literally died on the field.

In the immediate aftermath of the miss, all blame was placed on Parkey, and that's because there was no indication that the kick had been tipped.

Mistakes are bound to happen in a professional work setting, and if you claim to have never made a mistake in your life, then you either haven't been called out for making one, or you're a liar. The victor of that game will play the victor of Cowboys-Saints in the NFC Championship Game.

Bears fans booed Parkey as he exited the tunnel at Solider Field and other fans took out their frustration on Parkey via social media.

Kawhi Leonard blames media for Spurs fans booing him
Kawhi Leonard and former coach Gregg Popovich hugged and had a long discussion after the Spurs' 125-107 win over the Raptors on Thursday.

These comments, whether you consider them empty threats or not, are a downright disgrace. "I can't even imagine what he's going through".

Cody Parkey's postseason failure became Eagles history for the unknown Treyvon Hester.

Chicago signed Parkey to a four-year, $15 million this past offseason.

In fact, when seeing how effective the Bears' defense was for most of the game outside of that final go-ahead drive by the Eagles, the unit deserves plenty of credit for holding the defending champions to scoring just 16 points.
