Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass did not deflect responsibility when he was asked about missing a 44-yard field goal wide right in the final two minutes against the Kansas City Chiefs.
A successful field goal attempt would have tied the AFC Divisional round game. Instead Bass dragging the kick outside the goal posts ended his team’s season.
‘It is completely on me,’ Bass said after the game.
Bass added the snap was good and the hold on the kick was great. Reading between the lines, that only adds to Bass’ statement about it being all on him.
Bass did make his only other field-goal attempt of the game from 27 yards.

After the game, Bills quarterback Josh Allen ran into Bass walking back to the locker room and gave him a big hug.
‘I wish it wouldn’t have been put in that situation,’ Allen said of Bass. ‘You win as a team, you lose as a team. One play doesn’t define a game, it doesn’t define a season.’
‘I know people are going to be out there saying that,’ Allen continued. ‘We got to be there for him, because again, we execute a couple plays prior, probably signing a different tune right now.’
In situations like the one Bass faced, kickers are in a hero-or-zero situation.
Bass’ expression tells the entire story of how awful he felt for missing a kick he has routinely made throughout his career.
