Laces were in on Blair Walsh’s missed 27-yard field goal

Blair Walsh laces in

For 59 minutes and 34 seconds, Blair Walsh was the MVP for the Minnesota Vikings in their playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks. And then he missed a 27-yard field goal with 26 seconds left at a time when the Vikings were all but assured of a victory.

Here is a look at the kick:

Replays showed that the laces were in on the kick, which is something that tends to negatively affect kickers.

Walsh did actually make a 47-yard field goal — impressive no matter what, but even more so in those weather conditions — earlier in the game despite the laces being in. This time around, he could not deliver.

Walsh was still 3-of-4 on field goals and really had a good game overall. Even more than his missed field goal, Adrian Peterson’s fumble hurt the Vikings’ chance of winning.
