Bears' Parkey off social media after missed field goal
CHICAGO (AP) Kicker Cody Parkey is staying off social medial after his missed field goal at the end of the Chicago Bears' 16-15 wild-card loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Parkey told NBC's "Today" show Friday he feels "worse than anybody about missing that kick." He also says "football is what I do; it's not who I am."
The Bears won the NFC North in their first season under coach Matt Nagy after four straight last-place finishes. Parkey thought he hit a "pretty good kick" and his 43-yard attempt would go in even as it hit the left upright and crossbar. He wasn't aware Philadelphia's Treyvon Hester touched it.
Parkey also expressed appreciation for his teammates' support.
