HENERY EXTENDS STREAK

Alex Henery's three first-half field goals broke a team record for most consecutive field goals. He entered the game with 16 field goals, and the streak went to 19 after his 45-yard field goal in the second quarter. Henery and Akers previously shared the record at 17.

"That is not one of those things that I look at," Henery said. "It's a cool honor, but I have to concentrate on the next kick, not the last one."
