Meet Cody Parkey: The Kicker Whose Life, Family Are Getting Death Threats

Share

The Eagles won five of their final six regular-season games.

The Bears lost in insane fashion when Chicago kicker Cody Parkey's field-goal attempt in the final seconds hit the upright and the crossbar and bounced out. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson chose to ice Parkey, who made the first try. And he did it just in time.

The Eagles coach knew Parkey had a patchy record during the season, having missed 10 kicks at goal earlier in the campaign.

However, before jumping the gun by looking ahead to that game, let's take a look at some of the highlights from Sunday's contest with three reasons why the Eagles should be viewed as big winners from their victory over the Bears. It hit the upright. Two: Watching that ball hit the upright and then the crossbar last night was the first time in my life I've had the thought, "I'm glad I'm a Jets fan instead of a fan of that team".

What a finish to a insane game.

The moment was instantly dubbed the "Double Doink" thanks to the sound made by the ball as it twice rebounded off the uprights and was referred to as such by a host of media outlets reviewing the game.

Here's Parkey after the game, digesting one of the worst moments a professional kicker has ever had.

And Monday's front page of the Philadelphia Daily News declared: "CLANKS FOR THE MEMORY!". It is what it is. They had an wonderful season.
