Dimke Perfect In Preseason Opener

Rockford native Derek Dimke was between the uprights with his kicks in the Saints' preseason opener.
ST. LOUIS-Rockford native Derek Dimke made the most of his opportunities in the Saints preseason opener Friday against the Rams. He made his only field goal attempt from 37 yards. He also made his only extra point attempt from the NFL's longer experimental distance of 33 yards.

His competitor for the kicking job veteran Shayne Graham, missed a 33 yard extra point attempt wide. But Graham did convert at 37 yard field goal just as Dimke did.

The Saints beat the Rams 26-24. The Saints next preseason game will be next Friday, August 15th at home against the Titans.
