NFL Kickers Ready To Move Up On The All-Time Leader List In 2017

Wiuth the 2017 NFL season ready to start, we’re taking a look to see if any kickers are primed to move up on the all-time career leader list this year.

Extra Points Made
On the top ten all-time list for extra points made in NFL history, there is one active kicker. Adam Vinatieri has been one of the best for a long time and has made 786 extra points. This puts him just 24 behind Lou Groza and 4th place and 34 behind Gary Anderson and 3rd place. Sebastian Janikowski and Stephen Gostkowski sit in 17th and 18th place on the all-time list, respectively. They’re both over 50 extra points away from the top ten list.

Field Goals Made
There are three active NFL kickers on the all-time field goals made list in NFL history. Adam Vinatieri sits in 3rd place, Sebastian Janikowski is in 9th place, and Phil Dawson is in 10th place. Only Janikowski is within reach of Dawson on the list and that would change with every kick the Raiders kicker makes. Janikowski himself is 23 field goals behind Jason Elam and 8th place on the all-time list. Vinatieri needs nine field goals to pass Gary Anderson and take over second place all time. If he had an outstanding year and made 35 field goals, the most he ever has in a season, he would tie Morten Andersen for the most field goals made in NFL history.
