The announcer’s jinx is real.
During the Lions-Bills Thanksgiving day game, Nantz boldly said that they he didn’t believe in an announcer’s jinx while telling the viewers at home that Michael Badgley hadn’t missed a kicker all year. Unfortunately for Nantz, Badgley went on to miss the kick.
"Do not talk to me about an announcer's jinx. Michael Badgley has not missed a kick all year, field goal or PAT."- Jim Nantz
