Lawrence Tynes K TB Nov 03 '12
Giants K Lawrence Tynes is on pace to score more points than anyone in NFL history ever has in one season.
Tynes has 94 points in eight games, the season's halfway point. He's on pace for 188 points, which would top the record for any player (LaDainian Tomlinson's 186 points in 2006) and shatter the record for a kicker (David Akers' 166 points last season). The kicking record before Akers broke it was Gary Anderson's 164 points in 1998. Paul Hornung, a halfback and kicker, scored 176 points in 1960 while kicking 15 field goals and 41 extra points, but the Packers star also had 15 touchdowns.
