The Dallas Cowboys got off to an almost perfect start in Monday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Their evening could get even better in Brett Maher who could make an extra point.
The Cowboys’ kicker missed all three point-after attempts, limiting Dallas to an 18–0 lead at halftime. Onlookers cannot believe what they are seeing.
during manningcastA disgusted Peyton Manning asked if the Cowboys could cut him in half.
“You’ve got to be kidding me,” Peyton said. “Why are we killing it?”
“Oh my God,” Eli Manning said. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Yet this was not the most angriest reaction from a quarterback who witnessed Maher’s lapses. dak prescott appeared to be shouting“GO FOR F—–G TO” on the sideline.
According to ESPN Stats & InfoMaher became the first kicker to miss three extra points in a post-season game.
ESPN’s Field Yates Noted that Maher missed three-point attempts all season prior to his terrible first half.
Robert Griffin III suggested The Cowboys check Maher’s phone records because “something’s amiss.”
Luckily for the Cowboys, Mike McCarthy elected to go for fourth and goal on one during the second quarter. Otherwise, Maher would have cost them more points than missing a chip-shot field goal.
For Maher, let’s hope the Cowboys hold their lead. It could get especially ugly for him if they decide the game at three point Tampa Bay.
Dallas wants to listen to Prescott and go for two during the second half.
