Legatron is off to a great start in 2018

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Los Angeles Rams’ kicker Greg Zuerlein did his part in the team’s Week 1 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Monday Night Football. Connecting on four out of five field goal attempts, and nailing each of this three extra point attempts, Zuerlein is now being recognized for scoring nearly half of his team’s points in Week 1.

The Rams’ offense put GZ in a good spot on Monday night, providing him opportunities to punch them through the uprights on attempts of 20 yards (twice), 28 yards, and his longest of the day came in the fourth quarter - which he kicked off the dirt of the Oakland A’s infield - was 55 yards.

It marks a great start to the season for the Rams’ kicker, who won the Special Teams Player of the Week award twice in 2017 — following standout performances against the Cowboys (Week 4) and Texans (Week 10).
