Icing The Kicker

In American football, “icing the kicker” refers to the technique used by the defending team to disturb the process of kicking a field goal just before a snap.

Also called “freezing the kicker”, “icing the kicker” involves a timeout call by either a coach or a player of the defending team right before the kicker of the other team makes an attempt to tie the game or win the game with a field goal.
