LANDOVER, Md. -- Greg Zuerlein missed an extra point, a 28-yard chip shot and a 38-yard attempt -- all wide right -- before sneaking one just inside the upright from 34.

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein is not a fan of the longer distance for extra point attempts that is being tested in the preseason.
"It's an interesting experiment, but I don't understand the reasoning behind it," Zuerlein said Wednesday after practice at Rams Park. "They're trying new things and we just deal with. I was not consulted.
