The 5th year veteran nailed two 55-yarders and a 50-yard field goal during the Cardinals 25-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks at Sun Devil Stadium.

The Seahawks' Josh Brown also hit a 54-yard field goal on Sunday to mark the first time in NFL history that four 50-yarders were kicked in the same game.

The shoes Rackers wore during the game were sent by the Cardinals to the Hall of Fame.  They arrived in Canton on Wednesday.  (RELATED STORY: Newest mementos added to Hall's collection>>> )
