Dating back to last year, Tampa Bay kicker Connor Barth has led the NFL with 22 consecutive field goals made. On Sunday, Barth added to that total by knocking home kicks of 47, 50, and 57 yards to give him 25 consecutive conversions. The 57-yard field goal Barth kicked in the second quarter set a new career high for the sixth year pro. On the defensive side of the ball, sixteen year veteran Vonnie Holliday totaled two tackles, one hit on the quarterback, and a crucial fumble recovery as the Cardinals topped the Dolphins and improved to 4-0 on the year.
