I’m going to make a pop culture reference here that a good number of you aren’t going to get.
So please, do me a favor and watch this short one minute clip from the year I was born, 1976:
Alright, now that we’ve got that sorted, let’s take a look at Josh Brown doing his best Gus impression by mule kicking the Rams’ Cody Davis in the face.
Who says that kickers aren’t football players?
Brown also put his foot to the pigskin, nailing a 52-yard field goal to give the Giants a lead they would not relinquish.

New York went on the win the game 37-27. Next week they’ll close out a season they’d just as soon forget at home against the Eagles.
But there’s nothing quite like a game against your division rivals to provide motivation to play hard with nothing on the line.
The Eagles blanked the G-Men 27 to zip back in week 6 – but a lot has changed since then. Philly is out of the playoff race after failing to step up to the plate during the stretch run.
