This is a very tough look for McPherson. The kicking woes during the game were already beyond pathetic for both sides, but this moment might have been the worst of them all.
How do you celebrate a missed kick with so much confidence? It’s not like McPherson was waiting for the call.
He was dancing around as if he’d just 100% sealed up three points for the Bengals.

To call it a swing of emotions would be an understatement!

Next time, I suggest McPherson waits to see the officials make a call. That way, he can avoid getting mercilessly dragged online!
