Former players and media accuse Cowboys Kicker of deadly sports sin

How bad was the Monday Night Football playoff game between the Dallas Cowboys and Tom Brady?

So bad that the topic trending most on social media during the game wasn’t Brady or the Cowboys winning their first road playoff game in over 30 years.

The name that trended the most was Brett Maher, a kicker whose team won 31-14.

How bad was Maher’s night?

He missed four consecutive extra points, breaking the previous record for most missed PATs in a playoff game of two.

Maher also became the first player in league history to miss four extra points in a game, whether in the regular season or the postseason.

He attempted a 5th PAT later in the game and ended up making one with 1-5 on the night.

Many were quick to point out that the Cowboys and Buccaneers combined for 45 points.

The over/under score for bettors was 45.5.

This led to former NFL players and members of the media accusing Maher of shaving points for a bet, the unofficial deadly sports sin for a player or coach.

Maher’s fall of the Yips would have been an even bigger story if the game had been close, but luckily for the Cowboys, his missed shots didn’t affect the game’s outcome.

Many assumed Dallas would try a few kickers this week, but owner Jerry Jones says they’ll be sticking with Maher.

Assuming Maher goes up for an extra point or field goal attempt in this Sunday’s Cowboys playoff game against the 49ers, it’ll be a must-watch on TV.
