An anniversary of one of the most heartbreaking play in NFL history

On January 6th, 2019, Bear kicker Cody Parkey’s 43-yard field goal attempt was partially blocked, then hit the left upright, then bounced off the cross-bar and fell into the end zone. This caused the Bears to suffer a heartbreaking loss against the Eagles, 16-15, and they did not advance to the Divisional playoffs. Commentator Chris Collinsworth coined the phrase “double doink” and the play went down in history. It was Parkey’s 11th miss of the season. Doink, doink.
