Celebrating Stephen Gostkowski

Interesting notes about the Patriots record-setting kicker.

Stephen Gostkowski is in his 10th year with the Patriots, tied for the third-longest tenured active kicker with one team (Janikowski – 16, Gould – 11, Vinatieri – 10).


He has scored the most points per game among all active kickers (8.73).

He has led the NFL in scoring in each of the last three seasons (2012-14) and can become just the third NFL player to lead the league in scoring in at least four consecutive seasons, joining Don Hutson (1940-44) and Gino Cappelletti (1963-66).

Gostkowski also led the league in scoring in 2008, and can join Hutson and Cappelletti as the only players to lead the NFL in scoring five times.
