On Sunday, the game ended as a one point loss for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But if kicker Matt Gay's game-winning field goal attempt slides a couple of feet to the left, the narrative would have been completely different after the game & on Monday when head coach Bruce Arians met with the media.
During his time with the media, Arians pointed out that Gay's kick overshadowed some of the great individual performances against the New York Giants, including wide receiver Mike Evans tying a franchise record with three receiving touchdowns in a game & linebacker Shaq Barrett recording four sacks plus two forced fumbles.
Arians also stated although Gay missed two extra points earlier in the game on Sunday, he was confident that his kicker was going to make the game-winning 34 yard field goal, which was just one yard longer than the distance of an extra point.
As for those who believe the team is cursed because of past issues with its kicking game, Arians isn't a believer in curses. And if you're wondering if the head coach has considered getting rid of the rookie kicker, his response to the question wasn't good grammar but the message was clear, "He ain't going nowhere,"
