Chicago Bears Kicker Cody Parkey Credits Jesus For Missing Field Goals, Extra Points
Chicago Bears kicker Cody Parkey missed two extra points and two field goals during a game against the Detroit Lions on Nov. 11.
Parkey hit the uprights on every failed attempt, which he credited to Jesus, notes the Chicago Sun-Times:
I don’t think I’ve hit the post four times in my whole life, and I’ve probably been kicking for about 15 years, so it’s almost comical.
Of course they’re frustrated with me, but who’s more frustrated than myself?’ I mean, this is my job, this is what I’m supposed to do, and I’m missing out there.
I’ve got just to trust in what I’m doing and trust that my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ makes no mistakes. For whatever reason, that was the day I was supposed to have.
