FOXBORO (CBS) – Think you could have made the 32-yard field goal that Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff missed at the end of Sunday’s game?
On Monday, Mike Felger guaranteed that he could.
“I guarantee you I’m 5-for-5 on that kick,” Felger said on Monday’s Felger & Mazz show.
Felger then hashed out a plan to show just how easy that 32-yard field goal should have been for Cundiff.
“We’re all going to kick from 32 yards. I guarantee you half of us will make it. When you get there and you see how close it is, how wide the goal, and how you cannot miss that kick, it is going to put it into perspective just how much of a gag that was by the Baltimore Ravens,” Felger said Monday.
So, Felger, Tony Massarotti and Marc Bertrand, joined by 98.5 The Sports Hub producers Billy Lanni and Jimmy Stewart, all attempted the kick at a field in Watertown on Tuesday at around noon.
Watch the competition:
The loser of the field goal contest must grow a Joe Flacco Fu Manchu mustache through the Super Bowl, so there was a bit of pressure riding on each kick.
Bertrand, Lanni, Stewart and Massarotti all were unable to find success with any of their kicks. Felger, on the other hand, was able to split the uprights two out of three times from 32 yards. In the end, the group went a combined 2-for-15.
Felger then tried to nail a kick in UGG Boots while wearing a Cheesehead just to really embarrass Cundiff, but just couldn’t get the height or the distance.
After kicking zero field goals in the Billy Cundiff Field Goal Contest, Mazz said he wouldn’t leave until he made one. After four or five extra tries, Mazz was finally able to knock one through.
Watch Tony’s final kick:
Update: It’s been a week since the contest and only Tony Massarotti and Marc Bertrand are growing their Joe Flacco Fu Manchus. What do you think of the progress?
