He could be the hero for his side As Cody Parkey ten seconds before the end of the NFL game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Chicago Bears against the Football came, it was his team with a point at the rear. The Kicker would have brought the ball out of 43 Yards (roughly 40 metres) between the rods, would have moved the Bears into the Playoff quarter-finals.
But it was not to be, The Ball flew to the left of the bar, jumped from there to the cross bar and then back to the field. The referee showed with her hand movement immediately: no three points for Chicago. And thus no victory for the Bears, which had to be 15:16. Instead, the defending champion from Philadelphia is now in the next round.
Parkey realized that his field goal was unsuccessful, he allowed his upper body to the front of the sink and supported the poor on his legs. Teammate Bobby Massy lifted him again and took him in his arms. Bears Coach Matt Nagy, by contrast, stood with open mouth to the side line and seemed to be speechless in the face of the lost opportunity.

“It is one of the worst feelings in the world to leave your Team hanging. I feel terrible,” said Parkey after the game. He had actually thought, initially, that he had delivered a good try. The missed shot he could not explain. “I’ll take the defeat to a hundred percent to me. This will keep me busy for a while.”
It was in this season for the first Time, that Parkey has awarded a field goal attempt. In the game against the Detroit Lions last November, he met four times with the rods. A week later, he was however, thanks to three altered shots of the highly acclaimed player in the victory against the Minnesota Vikings.
against the Eagles, the experienced Kicker that plays for 2014 in the NFL had transformed, his first three Attempts. But the decisive trial of the 26-Year-old, who was replaced in 2018 to the Eagles, went wrong. “It’s hard,” said Coach Nagy: “A difficult story.”
the opponents of relief prevailed: “We just hoping that he’s going to pass,” said Eagles Quarterback Nick Foles. The game makers had provided 56 seconds before the end with a Touchdown Pass for the leadership of the guests. Philadelphia Treyvon Hester said, according to ESPN the Portal, “The Athletic” that he had touched the Ball on Parkey. On the Video the is not.
