    Bailey kicks Cowboys to win over RedskinsSeptember, 27, 2011

    Despite not scoring a single touchdown on Monday, the Dallas Cowboys improved to 2-1 on the season with an 18-16 win over the previously unbeaten Washington Redskins. Dan Bailey kicked six field goals in six attempts tying the rookie record for field goals in one game. Garo Yepremian had six for the Lions in 1966 (in a 32–31 win over the Vikings) and the Steelers’ Jeff Reed had six in 2002 (in a 25–23 win over the Jaguars).

    Bailey is also the third kicker in Cowboys' history to kick at least six field goals in a game. The former Lou Groza Award winner out of Oklahoma State joins Chris Boniol in 1996 and Billy Cundiff in 2003 who each kicked seven field goals and also did it on Monday Night Football. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Bailey is also the first Dallas kicker since Cundiff in 2003 to make at least one field goal in six consecutive quarters (including an overtime period).

    We have a kicker. One kicker, and perhaps the most serendipitous turn of events from last night.

    Until a good returner returns a kickoff for a touchdown .. Fans sometimes forget the NFL is not Madden.
