The Billy Cundiff era (if you can call it an era) is over after 17 days. The 49ers on Friday waived Cundiff, who they brought in on Jan. 1 to compete with erratic incumbent David Akers for the team’s kicker position moving forward. Akers won the job for last week’s divisional round game against the Packers (going 1-for-1 on field goals—a 36-yarder), but Jim Harbaugh kept Cundiff on the 53-man roster. With Cundiff’s departure, Akers has likely won the job for good, unless he melts down against the Falcons and the 49ers still make the Super Bowl.

Baltimore Ravens: Five Reasons They Will Lose the AFC Title Game

I remember it like it was yesterday. With 1:44 left on the clock, Joe Flacco drove his Ravens down the field with methodical purpose-- 2nd-and-1 from the 14, he promptly hit Lee Evens right in the hands for the apparent go-ahead touchdown. Knocked away by Sterling Moore. We all know what happened after that. Billy Cundiff's shanked 32-yard field goal crushed the Ravens'...
