Cody Parkey Opens Up About Double-Doink Missed/Blocked Field Goal (VIDEO)
It’s been a very trying 2019 for Cody Parkey as he deals with being known as the guy who single handily ended the Chicago Bears season because of a missed field goal that double doinked off the upright and crossbar.
The Bears kicker discussed his last-second missed field goal attempt, later changed to a block, against the Eagles on Friday when he sat down with hosts of NBC’s Today Show.
“As a kicker you live for those moments,” Parkey said on the Today Show. “I was three-for-three before that, I had a lot of confidence going into that kick… It felt good off my foot, looking up I saw it hit the upright, it hit the crossbar, and I’m like, ‘surely it will go in.’ Unfortunately it bounced toward me.”
Prior to that miss, Parkey had nailed field goals from 36, 29 and 34 yards to put the Bears in a position to even have a chance to win the game.
The Bears are still looking for their first playoff win since 2010.
