It’s Week 1 for everyone, including the NFL’s officials.
In the first quarter of the Eagles’ season opener against the Browns, kicker Caleb Sturgis lined up to kick a 46-yard field goal. His kick, however, failed to go through the uprights — I think. He might’ve made his kick.
I’m not sure, because the officials weren’t either. Instead of telling us the result of the play, the officials did their best replacement-refs impression by recreating the Fail Mary on the field goal.
That should look familiar.
For the record, the kick was eventually ruled no good. Unlike the Fail Mary, the correct call was made.
