The Sunday Night Football missed field goal: A story in GIFs

The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New York Giants on Sunday because of one final play. The Giants were hit with a big offensive pass interference penalty when they seemed destined to be on the express train to Winning Touchdown Junction. In fairness, the pass interference was PRETTTTTY flagrant.

Yep, that's pretty much just a sleeper hold.

With 15 seconds left in the game, New York was looking at a 54-yard field goal attempt on third and 19. Lawrence Tynes came in to kick his little heart out, but shanked it very wide left.

BUT WAIT! It turns out that Andy Reid had called a time out right as the ball was being snapped, because bush league moves die hard.

At least Reid looked sufficiently sheepish about his bungle.

So everyone set up to do it again. This time it was straight as a football-shaped arrow. Did it have the distance, Tynes?
