MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — If there is anybody who knows what it’s like to miss the uprights in a crucial situation, it’s Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh.

The Patriots ended up losing by only two points. Had they scored the extra point earlier, they’d only need to kick an extra point — after they scored a last-minute touchdown — to send the game into overtime.
