Vikings kicker Blair Walsh handled missing a game-winning field goal with class

SB Nation 2016 NFL Playoff Guide

The Vikings season ended with Blair Walsh's stunning miss on a 27-yard field goal that would have given Minnesota a lead in the final minute of its NFC Wild Card game.

Walsh made his first three three field goal attempts — the Vikings only points Sunday — before the miss.

The shank completely shocked NFL fans — and players!

And the Internet reacted ... predictably.

To his credit, Walsh was a complete professional after the game.

Even so, after answering questions he was understandably beside himself.

But his teammates were right there to support him, with one saying "We're not going to abandon him."

Keep your head up, Blair. You scored all the points today and sports suck sometimes.
