Los Angeles Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein has quickly turned into one of the best kickers in the NFL. He earned another trophy for his mantle this month.

After being named the NFC Special Teams in October, his encore performance earned him the award for the second consecutive month.
Zuerlein has only missed two field goals this year, but that comes with an asterisk as the missed field goal last week came from 63 yards. His 94.1% is a career best and he is currently leading the NFL in points scored.
He is doing his best to make people notice that Johnny Hekker isn’t the only Pro-Bowl caliber specialist on the Rams. It helps that he’s not being asked to kick multiple 50+ yard bombs weekly, and Sean McVay is doing his part to ensure that Zuerlein is put in a position to succeed.
More difficult kicks lie ahead for Zuerlein as the Rams jockey for playoff position, but for the moment let’s relish in his accomplishments.
