Joe Buck Jinxes Cowboys Kicker Before Missed Field Goal (Video)

The Joe Buck jinx was all too real for Dallas Cowboys fans Sunday night.

While Dan Bailey was lining up for a 41-yard field goal against the Detroit Lions in the third quarter of their wild-card game, the FOX announcer was busy heaping praise on the Cowboys kicker. Buck noted that Bailey was the NFL’s most accurate kicker, making 114 of the 127 field-goal attempts in his four-year career.

Turns out it was a bad time to bring up that little fact, though. Bailey shanked his attempt — that would’ve cut the Lions’ lead to seven — wide right just as Buck was explaining how he never missed.

Lions fans really owe him one.
