Cody Parkey was the butt of jokes after missing the game-winning field goal for the Bears Sunday night against the Eagles. Not only did the kick not win the game for the Bears, it lost it.
The animosity from Bears fans towards Parkey did partially subside after video showed that Eagles lineman Treyvon Hester may have gotten a finger on the ball, altering its trajectory just enough for the ball to curve left and off the upright.

Another more clear angle from the side has emerged and its clear as day that the Eagles did in fact block the kick.
