Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Rob Ryan says Cincinnati Bengals kicker Shayne Graham missed his winning 31-yard field goal in overtime last week.

Without being prompted, Ryan referred to Graham's kick with 4 seconds left that gave the Bengals a 23-20 win.

"You can watch the tape," Ryan said Friday. "I'm not saying anything, but man, maybe the posts were crooked. Look at it."

A video replay from an end zone camera appears to show Graham's kick sail wide of the right upright, confirming Ryan's belief. Browns cornerbacks Brandon McDonald and Eric Wright both waved that they thought the kick was off the mark.


When I was watching this on the Red Zone I thought the same exact thing but assumed the camera angle made it look like a miss. I think this happens more than we think. They really need to get some technology involved with this stuff and get it right.

No doubt about it. And it doesn't seem like it would be that hard to make technology work in that regard.

Looked like a miss to me when I saw it live. I was shocked when they called it good.

Along with some goal line cameras for both sides.

Yep, it looked good then, it looks good now. As far as new technology to get it right, how about having the ref look up.
