NFL playoffs 2019: Eagles lineman tipped Cody Parkey’s FG attempt, video shows

Bears K Cody Parkey on missed game-winning field goal attempt: 'I feel terrible'

There’s a reason Cody Parkey thought he sealed a win over the Eagles with his 43-yard field goal attempt Sunday in Chicago.

The Bears kicker likely would have secured the victory had Eagles lineman Treyvon Hester not got his hands on the ball.

“Me and Haloti (Ngata) … we got penetration, got the hand up like coach always says. Tipped off my fingertips,” Hester said after the game, via the Philadelphia Inquirer.

“Felt good … (but) actually, I thought I didn’t get enough of it, I thought it was going to go in. When I saw it going in, I turned back around. Then I heard everybody screaming, I was like, ‘Oh, s— … he missed it.”

Parkey’s kick hit the left upright pole and then the crossbar before bouncing away, giving the Eagles a 16-15 win at Soldier Field to advance past the wild-card round of the playoffs.

“I feel terrible,” Parkey said after the loss. “There’s really no answer to it. I thought I hit a good ball.”

Parkey’s first attempt was good with room to spare, but Eagles coach Doug Pederson called a timeout before the snap.

“It’s one of the worst feelings in the world to let your team down,” Parkey said. “I feel terrible. 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.”

The Eagles will next face the Drew Brees-led Saints at 4:40 p.m. ET Sunday in New Orleans.
