About This Quiz

The NFL has always been known for gut-wrenching hits, quick moves and last minute "hail Mary" passes that make and break their team. From teams who never won a championship to dynasties with Super Bowl rings for each finger, few stats matter more in football than the all-time leading scorer. While fans love the drop back forty yard pass deep in the end zone, many people don't realize that kickers often land on this coveted spot, notching extra points and field goals every game. Of course, you can't forget the Bradys, Rodgerses, and Montan's of the game. From kicker to quarterback and a few in between, these are the players that turn the tide of a game and throughout their career have been able to sustain one feat more than any other - consistency. 

For which team did Jason Elam notched points in his 14-year career? On which team was Al Del Greco touted as being one of the greatest kickers in history? Then of couse, not all leading scorers send the ball sailing through the air: in fact, one of the most famous scorers played for America's Team and kept the ball on the ground. Do you remember which team Emmitt Smith played for? Other teams had career quarterbacks likely to hit the Hall of Fame. With such greats as Bart Starr, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers, this team's leading scorer is Ryan Longwell. Do you know the team? 

It's time to drop back and spread the pocket for a long ball to the end zone so you can nail this quiz on the NFL's all-time leading scorers!
