No one has scored more points than Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein in 2017, and now Zuerlein has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Month for the second time this season.
After receiving the honor in October, Zuerlein is once again the conference’s Special Teams Player of the Month for November.
Zuerlein scored 45 points in Los Angeles’ four games in the month of November, making 11 of 12 field goals and all 12 of his extra-point attempts. The only kick Zuerlein missed was a 63-yard field goal in last Sunday’s 26-20 victory over the Saints.
Overall this season, Zuerlein is leading the league with 32 made field goals and 34 field-goal attempts. He’s also on top of the league with 33 made extra points. He’s connected on all 11 of his field goal from 40-49 yards, and is 4-of-6 on field goals of at least 50 yards.
Zuerlein has 129 total points with five games to go. Should he continue at this pace, he will break the league’s single-season scoring record of 186— set by running back LaDainian Tomlinson back in 2006.
This is the Rams’ third NFC Player of the Month award in 2017. Running back Todd Gurley was also named NFC Offensive Player of the Month for September.
