In the grand scheme of things, Billy Cundiff’s miss from 52 yards in the third quarter wouldn’t have turned Monday night’s 12-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Ravens’ favor.
But the kicker wasn’t inclined to give himself a free pass in the locker room beneath Everbank Field in Jacksonville.
“As a Raven, that’s probably my worst one,” said Cundiff, who has made 59-of-70 field goals in three seasons with the Ravens. “It’s a tough situation in the sense that with my position, there’s really no re-do’s. When you get a chance, you’ve got to take advantage of it, and I didn’t.”
Cundiff’s attempt from 52 yards wasn’t even close, straying wide right from the time the ball left his foot.
Asked to walk through the kick, Cundiff said succinctly, “I don’t know how much there is to walk you through. It was awful. Let’s be honest, it was just an awful kick. That’s just the best way to put it.”
