Packers: Mason Crosby kicks his way to Top 10 an all-time scoring list
By Jerry Tapp
Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby had a pair of field goals and two PATs in Sunday’s contest, accounting for eight of the Packers’ 22 points in their loss to the New York Giants.
It was the 114th time in a regular season game that Crosby had eight or more points in a game.
Crosby’s 114 regular season games with eight points or more is the most in Packers history, but he has now also vaulted into a tie for ninth place on the NFL’s all-time list. Here is the list:
Most regular season games with 8+ points
- Adam Vinatieri, 169
- Gary Anderson, 144
- Morten Andersen, 143
- Stephen Gostkowski, 138
- Jason Elam, 129
- Jason Hanson, 119
- Robbie Gould, 117
- John Carney, 116
- John Kasay, 114
- Mason Crosby, 114
For the record, Ryan Longwell has the second-most games in Green Bay history with eight or more points with 68.
In Crosby’s 114 games with 8+ points, the Packers have a record of 92-20-2, a winning percentage of .816. Prior to the loss to the Giants this past weekend, the Packers had won 17 straight dating back to Game #4 of the 2019 season when Crosby had eight points or more in a game.
Crosby should (hopefully) this season find his way onto a couple more all-time NFL Top 10 lists:
- He currently sits at 11th place on the list of most games with six or more points with 170 and is just two behind Matt Stover in 10th place.
- On the list of most games with seven or more points, Crosby is again in 11th place with 143 games. Another active kicker, Robbie Gould, sits at 10th place with 146 games; Crosby and Gould both have their sights on John Carney who is in ninth place with 149 games.
- Crosby is currently tied for 11th place on the all-time list of players with the most games scoring 10 or more points. He has 65 games in this category.
One final note: There is one all-time scoring list where Crosby is already near the top. Crosby has played in 23 playoff games for the Packers and has tallied eight points or more in 12 of those games.
That ranks as the second-most in NFL history. Vinatieri is first on the list with 15 playoff games with eight or more points.
