The Rams are quite good at kicking footballs

NFL Training Camp is less than a month away, but if you’re looking for a statistical analysis of the upcoming Rams season, you’ve come to the wrong place.  We are here to share Dude Perfect’s latest video featuring Greg Zuerlein and Johnny Hekker, the Rams’ kicker and punter, respectively.
