Pats Beat Bills in a Wind Storm

Yesterday I witnessed one of the strangest plays I've ever seen in a football game. In the second quarter of the Pats-Bills game in Buffalo, Ryan Lindell lined up for a 47 yard field goal. The kick started towards the left goalpost, but then the wind caught it, seemingly accelerating the ball and pushing it so far right that the kick missed the net.

It might not sound that crazy, but watch the video (kick is at the 0:25 mark) and see for yourself.

The wind was so bad that the goalposts were skewed before the game started, and had to be straightened once during the game.

I saw that kick and it was insane. The ball was literally travelling almost parallel to the goal line by the end.

If I remember correctly, neither team attempted a pass moving right to left on the television view in the first half.
