Talk about a rare sub-par day!
Normally, a missed kick from Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater is about as rare a sighting as a friendly great white shark. But what about TWO missed kicks?
Prater struggled against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday at Ford Field, missing an extra point following a touchdown and then missing a 40-yard field goal attempt. The fans had plenty to say – check out some of the top reactions:

Matt Prater missed the extra point. I don't remember the last time I've said that or any of us did.

So the ultra reliable Matt Prater has now missed an XP and a short FG today. You hope it’s just a bad day and he’s not shot. #Lions special teams might be the worst unit in football this season

Matt Prater has missed two attempts in the same game for the first time since last year's season opener. Last missed PAT was Dec. 3, 2017.
