Browns Kicker Dawson Likes Hitting Those Crossbars

BROWNS BOOTER DAWSON DELIVERS ANOTHER CRAZY KICK: Phil Dawson likes to hit the bars - the crossbars.

For the 2nd time this year, the Cleveland kicker connected on the back goalpost bar for an improbable field goal.

On Sunday, in a blinding snowstorm against the Bills, the Browns booter attempted a 49-yarder:


The ball appeared to be heading wide left, but it somehow made a right turn and just sneaked through the uprights, bouncing on the back bar.The kooky kick was similar to Dawson’s goofy game-tying FG against the Ravens back in November:


On the last-second 51-yard attempt, the ball again hit the back bar, but bounced out. Officials initially ruled the kick no good, but after a lengthy discussion, reversed their own call. The reprieve led to Dawson nailing the game-winner in OT, as the Browns beat Baltimore.It’s hard to tell which is more amazing - Phil’s fantastic field goals, or that Cleveland is 9-5 and in playoff contention.
