Minnesota Vikings’ rookie kicker Blair Walsh kicked a 56-yard field goal against the Houston Texans during the second quarter Sunday in Houston, his NFL record ninth from 50-yards plus.
Kai Forbath, whom the Washington Redskins recruited from the Canadian Football League, set the NFL record for consecutive field goals to begin a career with 17 in a row. He had field goals of 45 and 42 yards in the first half Sunday against the Eagles.
