There are a lot of crazy things to talk about after New England’s win over the Ravens. But let’s start with the last one.
Why didn’t the Ravens call a timeout before Billy Cundiff’s failed field goal?
Cundiff raced on to the field very late and barely got set up in time. They barely got the snap off in time. The snap wasn’t great, but the hold looked fine.
And Cundiff hooked it in one of the most memorable misses in NFL history.
“I get paid to make field goals, I don’t get paid to miss field goals,” Cundiff said after the game.
Perhaps Ravens coach John Harbaugh didn’t want to ice his own kicker. Cardinals kicker Jay Feely points out on Twitter that it’s a kicker’s job to take the timeout if he feels rushed.
So perhaps Cundiff didn’t want to ice himself.
