Rian Lindell misses rare extra point
ESPN.com news services
TORONTO -- Bills kicker Rian Lindell missed an extra point attempt against the Bears that ended his streak of extra points at 321 -- the fourth longest in NFL history.
Lindell's attempt following Fred Jackson's 4-yard touchdown in the third quarter Sunday was blocked by the Bears' Israel Idonije. The lineman came through the middle of the line and knocked the kick down with his arm.
It was Lindell's first extra-point miss since he entered the league in 2001, the longest streak to start a career in NFL history.
Matt Stover has the record with 422 consecutive extra points from 1996-2009.
The Bills lost the game 22-19.
