His 49-yard attempt initially appeared to go straight through the column, but suddenly turned to the left, hit the flag above the left column, and fell.
However, McPherson—he had a good start to his first year in the NFL—started to celebrate after seeing his kick go straight, high-five the ball and hug some of his teammates. The officials of the are sending a signal to the stadium-the goal is not good.
The 22-year-old told the media that it was a “strange feeling” to celebrate, and then realized that he had missed it.
“I think you can say that I know when it will enter, that was one of the moments, so when it hit a hard left, I kind of celebrated with Kevin (Hu Bo). I really can’t tell you— Maybe it was a gust of wind that blew it there at the last second. I hit it well. I’m not happy about it, but now I really can’t do anything.”
However, he is not the only problematic kicker on the court.
Packers kicker Mason Crosby entered the game with a 27-game winning streak.
But the 37-year-old player missed three consecutive goals in the final minutes of the game and in overtime, extending the game time.
This is the second time since 1970 that he has missed four possible overtakes in the fourth quarter or overtime.
However, Crosby did redeem himself, completing a 49-yard lore with 1:55 left in overtime, giving the Packers an important victory at Paul Brown Stadium.
This victory gave the Packers a 4-1 lead after four consecutive victories, while the Bengals fell 3-2 behind.
