Foles gives Eagles lift they need just in time to beat Bears

Foles gives Eagles lift they need just in time to beat Bears

After the 26-year-old's massive miss, which followed his three successful kicks from 36, 29, and 34 yards to keep Chicago in the game, Parkey took full responsibility for the loss in the locker room by simply saying, "I feel bad".

"You can't make this up", Parkey said via ESPN. Then Eagles lineman Treyvon Hester got his hands on the ball on the second attempt.

In the immediate aftermath of the miss, all blame was placed on Parkey, and that's because there was no indication that the kick had been tipped. "I feel awful. Continue to put things into perspective, continue to just put my best foot forward and just sleep at night knowing that I did everything in my power this week to make that kick and for whatever reason it hit the crossbar and the upright".

Second Team All-Pro returner, Desmond King opened the half with a 73-yard kick return to set the Chargers up in field goal range. That was reflected in ticket prices for the two NFC games being played in the next round of the 2018 playoffs.

"I feel bad", Parkey told reporters after the game. A slow-motion replay tweeted by ESPN appears to show Hester's fingertips deflecting the kick. It looks like Hester tipping the ball sent it off course. If they keep Parkey, they only have to pay him $4.2 million. It's a tough job. We win as a team, we lose as a team.

The NFC North champion Chicago Bears had their first playoff appearance in eight seasons come to a brutal end. They had an wonderful season.

"We can't see it right now, but I guarantee you that feeling we just had in that locker room's going to help us in the future", Nagy said.
