When Parkey, signed as the Browns' kicker on Saturday to replace an injured Patrick Murray, had a chance to give the Browns their first win of the season at the final gun, he did what every Browns player always does in crucial moments -- the opposite of what he was supposed to do.
He missed what would have been a game-winning field goal wide left and the Dolphins breathed a sigh of relief.
Predictably, the internet had some stuff to say.

This Browns-Dolphins game should be humanely euthanized for all our sakes.— Robert Mays (@robertmays) September 25, 2016
Goodell should have the authority to call this Browns/Fish game a tie. Don't play the overtime. We've seen enough— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) September 25, 2016

Given that it was Parkey's third miss of the day, I'm guessing he might not stick around in Cleveland for long.
The Browns lost in overtime, by the way. Of course they did.
