Social media is buzzing after late-game heroics lifted the Arizona Cardinals to defeat the Buffalo Bill by a score of 32-30. While most everyone is talking about DeAndre Hopkins’ spectacular grab to win the game, country artist Cole Swindell is recognizing another star from the game. Swindell took to Twitter Monday morning to congratulate Bills kicker Tyler Bass on his game performance.
“My boy!!!” Swindell proclaims in his tweet. “One more time for @tbass_xvi.”
Bass, nicknamed “Tyler Blast” by an NFL on CBS tweet, had the game of his life against the Arizona Cardinals. The kicker went into the game with a career-long field goal of 53 yards. On Sunday, he surpassed that feat not once, not twice, but three times. Bass, a rookie out of Georgia Southern was selected in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL draft. On the night, he connected on field goals of 54, 55, and 58 yards. It is quite an accomplishment for the NFL kicker, especially a rookie kicker in his first pro season.
Swindell Congratulates Both Teams
Swindell also gave props to both team for putting a fantastic performance that kept fans on the edge of their seats.
What a crazy ending! Great game— Cole Swindell (@coleswindell) November 16, 2020
“What a crazy ending!” he says. “Great game.”
Despite Bass’s monster game, the Bills came up short against the Arizona Cardinals thanks to late in the game heroics. Down by four with only a matter of seconds remaining in the game, Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray heaved a Hail Mary to the endzone. Murray’s teammate, wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, miraculously came down with the catch despite being triple-teamed. Hopkins made the astonishing catch just as the game clock hit double zeros signifying the end of the game.
After the game, Hopkins talks about what was going through his mind as the ball sailed through the air and into his waiting hands.
“It was on three people,” He says after the game. “They were in position. It was just a better catch by I.”
The Cardinals have a short week as they will next travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks on Thursday Night Football.
