Cowboys kicker Brett Maher misses four extra point attempts, makes NFL History
The Dallas Cowboys kicked the crap out of Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last night 31-14, but still managed to make headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Cowboys kicker Brett Maher made NFL history by missing three extra points in a playoff game and then miraculously missed another one, finishing the game 1-for-5 on extra point kick attempts.
Reaction: Brett Maher Third XP Miss on the Manningcast
Dak Prescott: “Go For Fucking Two!”
Following the third miss, Dak Prescott was visibly upset on the sidelines as the Cowboys took an 18-0 lead into halftime instead of a 21-0 advantage. Prescott could be seen saying “Go for fucking two” while slamming his helmet on the sideline.
Maher then took the field again in the third quarter, missing his fourth-straight extra point attempt
Not real, but funny edit of Jerry Jones asking for anyone in the stadium to come down to the field to kick extra points since Maher, visibly rattled, couldn’t manage to get the job done.
Maher got back on track, making his final extra point attempt after the Cowboys scored again in the fourth quarter. The game was pretty much out of reach from the start, but it does leave a huge question mark for Dallas heading into next week, when they face the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional round of the playoffs.
Bummer. Not Really. Go Birds.
