ST. LOUIS (FootballStL) -- Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein kicked his way into team history with a 58-yard field goal in the first quarter against the Seattle Seahawks -- and then he topped it with a 60-yard field goal in the third quarter.

The 58-yard kick, which followed a Seahawks touchdown, bested the 57-yard field goal Jeff Wilkins booted in 1998.

Zuerlein also added a 48-yard field goal with time expiring in the first half to make it 13-7 at the time.

The 60-yard field goal came on the opening drive of the second half and gave the Rams a 16-7 lead.

He would also nail a 24-yard field goal to put the score at 19-13.
