I don't understand why people are saying that Billy Cundiff's field goal miss was the worst in playoff history. Let say that he did make the field goal BUT nobody knows what would happen in Overtime.

Now if you look at Gary Anderson's video you will see why this is the worst.

It's true that Cundiff's would have only tied the game... still it was about 15 yards closer than Anderson's. It's a field goal that shouldn't ever be missed like that.

Let's just ignore the fact that the Vikings were still up 7 and their 6th ranked defense subsequently gave up 10 points. ok.

But Anderson's field goal was to merely take a ten point lead. It wasn't even to tie the game up, let alone win it.

I wasn't old enough to be a football fan back then, but I highly doubt Anderson deserves all the blame for the Vikings not being in the Super Bowl. Especially when they were up a TD late in the game at home.

Anderson's was a lot worse because it was literally his only miss all season.

This. Anderson's kick wasn't a make or break attempt. Cundiff would have definitely ended his team's season if he missed, and he did. It's not Anderson's fault his team's defense choked down the stretch and allowed the Falcons to take it into overtime.
