That season, Lindholm led all kickers in scoring with 179 points while connecting on 94.6 percent of his PATs and a League-high seven field goals. Lindholm played in the first 11 games of 2015 for the New Orleans VooDoo, where he successfully converted 90.2 percent of his PATs and hit on six field goals, including a long of 41 yards.
