Inept Seahawks-Cardinals Tie Is Perfect Example Of Why NFL Ratings Are Down
  • Rick Chandler

The reason NFL ratings are down, revealed: Every team stinks.

Well, perhaps not the Patriots, but it’s close. Case in point: two of the supposed best teams, Seattle and Arizona, played to a tie, 6-6 in overtime. The Cardinals’ Chandler Catanzaro missed 24-yard field goal attempt with just over three minutes left in overtime (the ball hit the uprights). Then the Seahawks moved into Arizona territory and, with 28 seconds left, Steve Hauschka missed a 28-yarder.

On Saturday CNN gave Hillary Clinton a 93 percent chance of winning the election: about the same percentage, they said, as an NFL kicker making a 29-yard field goal.

Time to start worrying, Hillary.
