You Just Can't Unsee What Happened to Cairo Santos on Sunday
Any human person with the ability to process empathy has to be feeling bad for Cairo Santos today.
The now-unemployed former Tennessee Titans kicker experienced the absolute nightmare scenario for every kicker on the planet against the Bills on Sunday.
He probably would've missed five or more, but mercifully was only allowed to attempt four.
These misses came from 36, 50, and 53 yards.
There was also a blocked 33-yarder for good measure.
The 53-yard attempt came in the fourth quarter of a one-score game after the previous three misses, prompting a very specific line of questioning towards head coach Mike Vrabel:
Please keep in mind this kick was attempted on a 4th-&-4 midway through the fourth quarter of a seven-point game.
Vrabel's gibberish aside, dude had very little chance of making that kick after what'd gone down previously.
Titans fans seem to agree:

Cairo Santos MISSES HIS FOURTH FIELD GOAL. 12 POINTS LEFT ON THE BOARD. 12 POINTS WOULD HAVE THE TITANS IN THE LEAD. NEW KICKER BY WEDNESDAY I PREDICT. #BUFvsTEN— talkingEndZone (@talkingendzone) October 6, 2019
Well, despite the all-caps yelling, this fan's prediction was in fact correct.
