New York Jets kicker Nick Folk came into Sunday's game needing just one field goal to tie Jay Feely's franchise record of 24 straight successful attempts.

The powerful winds at Ralph Wilson Stadium, however, had different ideas. A strong gust blew Folk's 48-yard, first-quarter attempt waaaay wide, ending Folk's streak and creating an all-time blooper in the process.

The winds caused havoc all day during the Jets' 37-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills. It contributed to quarterback Geno Smith's struggles and even ripped a gigantic American flag during pregame ceremonies.
