Cody Parkey missed a 43-yard field goal attempt with five seconds left that would have given the Chicago Bears an 18-16 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles in their NFC Wild Card playoff game on Sunday.

Cody Parkey will have a hard time showing his face in Chicago for the next few weeks after a disappointing end to the Bears' postseason run, but those who understand the pressure of professional sports have his back. They had an fantastic season.
