Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh, a former UGA kicker, missed a potential game-winning 27-yard field goal attempt wide left in a NFC playoff loss to Seattle on Jan. 10.
The laces were pointed toward Walsh in Jeff Locke’s hold.
“Having the laces out is going to give you better contact,” Locke told reporters after the game, but Walsh said, “the whole thing is on me and I accept that.”
