Blair Walsh enters the record book with ninth 50-yard field goal

The records are falling, both obvious and obscure.

Vikings kicker Blair Walsh has punctuated his rookie campaign with an all-time record.  With a 56-yard field goal, Walsh has set a new NFL record with his ninth make from 50 or more yards.

Walsh previously shared the mark with Morten Andersen and Jason Hanson.

Now all Walsh needs is a good nickname.  Jim Souhan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune has embarked on an effort to upgrade “The Blair Walsh Project.”

Our suggestion would be “The Walshing Machine.”

Discuss among yourselves.

More importantly, the Vikings lead the Texans, 10-3.
