St. Louis Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein is up for some well deserved recognition after his outstanding performance in Week 4. The NFL has nominated Greg the Leg as one of five candidates for the Pepsi Rookie of the Week Award.

Zuerlein kicked his way into the record books with a 58-yard and a 60-yard field goal this week, two of four field goals he booted on the way to a Rams' win over the Seattle Seahawks. He now holds the franchise record for the longest field goal, and it won't be long until he has the longest in the NFL.

From the official nomination:

Zuerlein was four for four on field goals including a 58-yarder and a franchise long 60-yarder in the Rams win over the Seattle Seahawks 19-13. He became the first kicker in NFL history to make a 60-yard and 50-plus yard field goal in the same game.

Alright, the Leg needs your vote, so get to it. Early and often.
