New Orleans Saints kicker Wil Lutz had a valiant attempt to tie the team’s game against the Minnesota Vikings in the final seconds of their Week 4 matchup but missed by inches.

Lutz attempted a 61-yard field goal to send the game into overtime in London, but the ball hit off the left upright then off the crossbar before falling into the end zone. The kick was no good.

Minnesota won the game, 28-25.

Lutz had nailed a 60-yard field goal to tie the game earlier in the fourth quarter, but it was met by Vikings kicker Greg Joseph’s 47-yard field goal that gave the team the lead and eventually the win. Joseph made all five of his field-goal attempts while Lutz was 1-for-2.
