Vikings kicker Blair Walsh authored one of the biggest choke-jobs in the history of pro sports Sunday, missing a 27-yard field goal attempt that would have sent the title-starved Vikings to the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.
"It's a chip shot," Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said after the game Sunday. "He's got to make it."
Walsh was understandably sick with himself following the game.

"It's so quick that I don't know what happened," Walsh said, fighting through tears. "You have to go back and look at the film. But I can tell you this: It's my fault. I don't care whether you give me a watermelon whole, I should be able to put that one through. Jeff did his job. Kevin [McDermott] didhis job. I'm the only one who didn't do his job. That's on me."
Many NFL fans on Twitter tweeted out that they would have made the chip shot of a kick. This Vikings fan above went outside in the sub-freezing temps to prove their point.
"You like that!You like that!," the Vikings fan said after making the 27-yarder in the snow. "Blair Walsh! It was that easy!"
