During the wildcard game everyone on here and myself included gave Akers a bunch of shit for missing those field goals. Well, now we know why he was off his game.
Long story short if you don't want to read the article:
His agent, Jerrold Colton, said it was a "private family health concern". Akers had been silent on the issue but told The Philadelphia Inquirer in a story that appeared in Sunday's editions that his 6-year-old daughter Halley had a malignant cyst in her left ovary that was removed in the week after the game."
