Found December 05, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
PLAYERS: Greg Zuerlein
TEAMS: St. Louis Rams
Rams K Greg Zuerlein made two field goals from 50-plus yards out in the Rams’ Week 13 overtime win over the 49ers.This should snap Legatron out of his mini-slump. His 53-yarder sent the game into overtime and he then converted a 54-yard blast with ease to win the game. He’s now 7-of-11 on field goals from 50-plus yards out and 21-of-27 overall. Zuerlein will be facing much more difficult conditions in Buffalo next week. Expect it to be very cold and snowy in Buffalo this week.  It should be interesting to see if “Legatron” keep it going. He has been a very good rookie for the Rams.  They have had a great draft class.
