Though the Rams had their bye last week, one L.A. player did enough in four games to receive a significant accolade.
Kicker Greg Zuerlein has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Month after recording 51 points in October — 14 field goals and nine extra points.
Zuerlein had an outstanding start to the month, hitting all seven attempted field goals in the Rams’ 35-30 victory over the Cowboys. The kicker was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance.
From there, Zuerlein connected on one field goal against Seattle, two against Jacksonville, and four against Arizona in London.
Through seven games, Zuerlein is the NFL’s scoring leader with 84 total points. He’s 21-of-22 in field goals and 21-of-21 on extra-point attempts.
Zuerlein is the Rams’ second NFC Player of the Month in 2017, as running back Todd Gurley was the conference’s Offensive Player of the Month for September. Gurley, Zuerlein, cornerback Trumaine Johnson, and kick returner Pharoh Cooper have also been named NFC Player of the Week in the first eight weeks of the season.
