The Bengals-Packers game turned into a bizarre duel between kickers to see which one could actually hit a field goal.
Between the two teams, there were five missed field goals in the span of eight minutes.
“Five missed field goals in the last 8 minutes”. 😳

The most bizarre missed field goal in the game came in overtime when Bengals kicker Evan McPherson and his teammates celebrated as if they had won despite the fact that he had just missed.

The Packers would go on to win the game in overtime with Mason Crosby field goal minutes later. Ouch.
