Dallas Cowboys kicker, Dan Bailey, proved that he is a beast by becoming the most accurate kicker in NFL history in the Cowboys win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Bailey, who went to college at Oklahoma State University, nailed a 42-yard field goal in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Seahawks, to top the list of great NFL kickers. Bailey has now made 102 of 112 attempted field goals in his career for a 91% rate.

Bailey signed as an undrafted free agent with the Dallas Cowboys in 2011. Since then, he has been nothing but solid. He made 86% of his kicks in his rookie season, 93% in 2012, 93% in 2013, and so far this year, 92%. The dude, is just a beast. Yes, I said a kicker is a beast. In fact, he had made 30 consecutive field goals until his miss against the Houston Texans in week 5 of 2014.
