But Parkey perhaps shouldn't be shouldering all of the blame-it now looks like the Eagles' Treyvon Hester tipped the ball near the line of scrimmage.

Dozens of Eagles fans used online payment platform Venmo to "thank" Parkey for his missed kick with small amounts of cash. With 10 seconds left, Cody Parkey came on to try a 43-yard, game-winning field goal attempt.

Greg Bishop drops a thorough piece for SI, examining Foles' journey over the past 11 months, since Foles led the Eagles to their first Super Bowl win, earning Super Bowl MVP honors in the process. I didn't make it.

The Bears' kicker even had one game where his kicks hit the uprights an incredible FOUR times. When I saw it going in, I turned back around [away from the goal posts]. "Then I heard everybody screaming, I was like, oh, [bleep]. he missed it".

If you zoom-in on the photo, you can see Hester's index finger slightly touch the ball. "I feel awful. I let the team down".


"The sun's gonna shine tomorrow, life's gonna go on, and unfortunately it's gonna sting for a while".

"You can't make this up", Parkey said.

In fact, when seeing how effective the Bears' defense was for most of the game outside of that final go-ahead drive by the Eagles, the unit deserves plenty of credit for holding the defending champions to scoring just 16 points. "There's really no answer to it".

Parkey made his first three field goal attempts on Sunday.
