CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns' kicking competition wasn't decided by makes or misses.
An injury knocked out Cody Parkey.
Parkey was placed on injured reserve Monday with a quadriceps injury, ending his 2020 season and seeming to point to Chase McLaughlin at least beginning the season as Cleveland's kicker.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee's search for a solution to their kicking problems continued Sunday when the Titans claimed Sam Ficken off waivers from the New York Jets and waived undrafted free agent Blake Haubeil.
The first half of Mitch Trubisky’s first NFL playoff game was unimpressive to say the least – 13 of 23 for 105 yards and a 68.2 passer rating.
But his second half demonstrated why coach Matt Nagy and Trubisky’s teammates believe he’s the right guy to lead them forward after a turnaround season.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Cody Parkey got an excuse he probably won't use.
Parkey's missed 43-yard field goal in the final seconds that gave the Philadelphia Eagles a 16-15 upset win over the Chicago Bears in Sunday's wild-card playoff game was officially ruled a block by the NFL...
CHICAGO (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles needed help to get into the playoffs, and Chicago provided it...
Bears PK Cody Parkey didn’t stay down for long.
One week after missing four kicks in Week 10 – two field goals and two extra points – Parkey is the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Sunday night’s performance in the Bears’ 25-20 victory over the Vikings.
The magnitude of Vikings vs. Bears on Sunday night can be explained by the division standings, the respective records and the game being flexed to a prime-time slot.
Two Chicago TV stations sent helicopters racing to Soldier Field this week to film beleaguered kicker Cody Parkey practicing field goals after he clanked the uprights four times against the Detroit Lions last week.
CHICAGO – The word around the NFL in recent months has been that the Bears are one of the league's most improved teams.
The biggest reason folks are focusing on them is a growing belief the team has found its franchise quarterback, based on his 12 game audition in 2017 and the possibility that Mitch Trubisky’s ceiling is extremely high and gaining altitude as talent and weapons are added around him.
