The NPR "All Things Considered" Jinx.

You've undoubtedly heard of the Sports Illustrated Cover Jinx and the Madden Jinx. Well, here's a new one - the NPR All Things Considered Jinx.

In a February 2 feature for All Things Considered titled "Long-Snappers May Help Decide Super Bowl," radio correspondent Tom Golden declares that Indianapolis Colts' holder Hunter Smith performed well "two weeks ago in the AFC championship game when he successfully handled low snaps twice. Both resulted in made field goals." Tom goes on to say that "Indianapolis long-snapper Justin Snow is considered one of the best."

Of course, we all know what happened Sunday - Smith and Snow muffed a snap for an extra point on the biggest stage of their careers.
