Kam Chancellor hurdles line to block field goal (Video)
Kam Chancellor nearly pulled off an awesome field goal block just before halftime in the Seahawks-Panthers playoff game on Saturday.
Chancellor knew the Panthers’ snap count and timed it perfectly to hurdle the center and affect the field goal. Graham Gano’s first 35-yard attempt was good but waved off because of a false start penalty. The kick was moved back five yards and on the next attempt, Chancellor did the same thing. This time he caused Gano to hook the kick wide left, but he was penalized for running into the kicker. On the third attempt, the Panthers varied the snap count so Chancellor did not try his hurdle. Gano made the final attempt to make the score 14-10.
We wonder if Chancellor stole the move from Daren Bates, who did the same thing against the Giants late in the season.
