The Falcons were looking to head into the locker room at halftime with a 13-10 lead, but Matt Bryant had other plans in mind. He managed to completely shank a 22-yard field goal that should have been an easy chip shot to end the second quarter.
As you see, Bryant completely pulls the ball as far left as possible. He's typically automatic for Atlanta. Not this time. Note that the ball was lined up on the right hash, and he missed wide to the left. That's impressive.
Before calling the time out, Bryant stomped at the grass where the ball would be held for a bit. Looked like he didn't like the area of turf— Jay Adams (@FalconsJAdams) November 25, 2012
Maybe the field condition played a factor. Maybe Matt Bryant is playing himself in fantasy football this week. Whatever the case, he'll want to forget that one as soon as possible.
