the foot in football
Through the first 11 weeks of NFL action, Minneapolis Star Tribune reporter Mark Craig noted that the league’s placekickers had been relatively dead solid perfect this season, converting 82.1 percent of their field goal attempts and helping their teams compete in tight games.

So what happens in Week 12? Not counting tonight’s in-progress Rams-Packers tilt, the kickers collectively stunk up the joint, hitting on only 41.5 percent (39-for-94) of FGAs. The biggest culprits: Jeff Chandler and Martin Gramatica, a combined 0-for-5 in yesterday’s Bucs-Panthers stinkfest.

It really was astounding to see so many misses. I figured some weird football voodoo was to blame.
