An incompletion would have nearly certainly meant an end to the Eagles' season, a quiet trip back to Philadelphia before the players cleaned out.
In an attempt to thank Cody Parkey for missing the Bears' potential game-winning field goal, Eagles fans are sending the kicker money through Venmo.
Known in the game as "icing the kicker", calling a time-out just before the start of the play piles added pressure on the kicker, giving more time for anxiety and nerves to play a part. People around the country took to social media to criticize, threaten, demean, humiliate, and attack the 2014 Pro Bowl kicker following his first season wearing a Bears uniform.
He also made sure to point out that Parkey's kick, as video revealed, was partially blocked. In what will likely go down as one of the wildest field goal attempts in playoff history, Parkey's kick bounced off the left upright AND the crossbar before bouncing out. "I thought I hit a good ball".

It was the seventh time this year Parkey has missed a kick by hitting the pipes, and if you couldn't believe it, clearly the Bears couldn't either.
What a finish to a insane game.
Cody Parkey's Double Doink miss had help. "I feel bad. I let the team down. Unfortunately, that's the way it went today".
"I 100% take that loss on me".
