NFL kickers don't get much respect to begin with--and this isn't going to help. Baltimore kicker Billy Cundiff became the instant goat of the NFL playoffs Sunday when he missed a 32-yard field goal that could have tied the Ravens with New England and sent the AFC title game into overtime. Instead, the Ravens are going home while the Patriots are going to the Super Bowl again. "Let's keep this simple," Cundiff, 31, told reporters afterward. "That's a kick I've kicked 1,000 times in my career but today I didn't convert. That's the way things go, but there's no excuse for it."
