Christie called Lindell

Posted by Chris Brown on December 24, 2008 – 5:02 pm

Rian Lindell, who is closing in on Steve Christie’s single season field goal record, got a call of support after his game-winning miss against Cleveland on Monday night football from the Bills all-time leading scorer.

“He gave me a call after the Cleveland game and left a voice mail and told me to keep my head up,” said Lindell. “That was nice of him to do that. I run into him every now and then.”

Since that phone call Lindell is a solid 11-13 on field goal attempts including his 3-3 outing this past Sunday in the win at Denver, with his most impressive probably being the 49-yarder when the football was more like a frozen rock in the 17 degree temps during the game.

Lindell is the most accurate kicker in team history and obviously has the respect of Christie, who was probably the most clutch kicker in team annals.
