Former Clemson kicker Chandler "Cat-man" Catanzaro made a 43-yard field goal in the second quarter against the Rams and it tied the NFL record for most field goals to start a NFL career (17) with Kai Forbath.

In the fourth quarter, Catanzaro attempted a 53-yard attempt and missed the kick to the right. However, he did make all four of his extra points on the day as the Cardinals won 31-14 over the Rams.

Catanzaro was still upbeat after his impressive field goal streak was over. "I just missed it," Catanzaro told arizonasports.com. "Left leg wasn't locked at contact, and of course that caused it to push a little to the right. It had the distance, but -- God is good. I've been on this great streak and I'm very thankful for that, and I'm just looking forward to the next opportunity to drill it and get on another streak."

Catanzaro signed a free agent contract with the Cardinals after the 2014 NFL draft. It was a 1-year deal for $420,000. He set Clemson records for PATs made, field goals of 40+ yards (24) and consecutive field goals (20). His career totals were 67 out of 82 field goals and 203 out of 207 extra point attempts.
