Matt Bryant completely shanks 22-yard field goal

Kevin C. Cox

Somehow that's possible for an NFL kicker.

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.

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.
