Chicagoans line up, fail to make 43-yard field goal

Not a single person out of the 100 that tried made it even close to Parkey's double-doinked kick.

Goose Island hosted a field goal-kicking contest outside of its Fulton Street taproom on Saturday.

Kicker Cody Parkey is staying off social media after his missed field goal at the end of the Chicago Bears' 16-15 wild-card loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Anyone who successfully kicked a 43-yard field goal would've received a pair of tickets to any 2019 regular season game of their choosing, plus round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations for two consecutive nights and $100 of Lyft credit complimentary of Goose Island. A successful kick would have led to a shot to be the grand-prize victor by hitting a 65-yard field goal, thereby breaking the National Football League record set by Matt Prater, who made a 64-yarder for the Denver Broncos on December 8, 2013.

Guess what, though? Kicking a 43-yard field goal is extremely hard, especially when it's snowing like it did in Chicago on Saturday.

Bears fan after Bears fan came up and did worst than Cody Parkey did.

Parkey also expressed appreciation for his teammates' support. Receive comprehensive coverage of the Bears.
