from CarolinaPanthers.com/www.carolinapanthers.com:CHARLOTTE — When the ball left his foot, Joey Slye thought he made it.
During pregame, the kicker had sailed one through the uprights from 60 yards that had 5 to 10 more yards of distance on it. Slye has also hit off the tee in practice from 70 yards out and from 73 with the wind at his back.
On this kick, Slye’s process was solid as he swung his right leg, from his stance to his chest, to the extension as he followed through. And the ball’s trajectory was right down the middle.
“I was like, ‘Oh, this is going to be good by at least two or three (yards),'” Slye said.
But this 65-yard field goal attempt, which would’ve been the longest field goal in league history, was just short. Not by much, as the slow-motion replays showed the ball going end over end before fading just in front of the uprights.
“Feel like, obviously, I let the team down,” Slye said. “They put trust in me to go out there, and every single time I’m on the field, I’m expecting to do my job at the highest level.”
Missing the field goal essentially sealed Carolina’s 27-24 loss in New Orleans, dropping the club to 3-4 on the season. But considering it was a 65-yard attempt, Slye was hard to blame. The real problem came on the snap before his near-record make.
The Panthers had third-and-11 from the New Orleans 39. That would’ve been a 57-yard field goal attempt — long, but makeable considering Slye’s leg strength. As quarterback Teddy Bridgewater dropped back, he had wide receiver Curtis Samuel on the left side, streaking toward the end zone in a one-on-one matchup with cornerback Marshon Lattimore.
“We had the perfect play call,” Bridgewater said. “Probably would’ve scored a touchdown if we had got it off.”
But Bridgewater’s pocket quickly collapsed. Saints defensive end Marcus Davenport started his rush to the outside before looping back inside to pressure Bridgewater up the middle. Running back Mike Davis got in front of Davenport, but it was no use. The quarterback couldn’t avoid Davenport’s grasp as he tried to step up, getting taken down for a critical 8-yard loss.
