Blair Walsh defends Stephen Gostkowski after tough loss

During the first quarter of Sunday’s AFC Championship Game, Stephen Gostkowski missed an extra point, something he rarely does. As it turned out, when New England scored a touchdown with 12 seconds left in regulation, they were forced to go for a two-point conversion (which was unsuccessful) to tie the game instead of attempting an extra point.

Loss adds another heartbreak to Vikings’ playoff history

  When Blair Walsh hooked his game-winning field goal wide left, he added his name and Sunday’s devastating result to a long list of postseason heartbreaks for the Minnesota Vikings.
