Final missed field goal tipped?

One aspect of Kris Brown's game-tying 50-yard field-goal attempt that might have been overlooked is how the rush of Kyle Arrington affected the try.

Arrington rushed off the defensive right side and, in a diving effort, nearly blocked the kick. After the game, Arrington thought he might have gotten the tip of his finger on the ball.

Whether the tip of Arrington's finger slightly altered the flight of the ball to the right is uncertain, although Arrington's overall impact on special teams was clear-cut.

He led the team with three special teams tackles, all on Darren Sproles on kickoff returns. The final tackle, in the fourth quarter, saved a potential touchdown on Sproles' 39-yard return.
