Packers | Paint causes issues on Longwell's missed field goal

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Green Bay Packers holder/P Ryan Flinn blamed wet paint for his hold that caused PK Ryan Longwell to miss his first field goal attempt Sunday, Dec. 25. In a brief snow shower and in otherwise damp conditions, the paint used to mark the yards on Lambeau Field came off on the ball as much as it did on both Packers and Bears jerseys. On Longwell's first field-goal attempt paint had accumulated on one of the ends of the designated k-balls. Flinn received the snap and tried to stop the rotation of the ball, but the paint made the end too slick, and the ball kept rotating as Longwell approached. He then pushed the kick right. Longwell also missed a field goal later in the game.
