Lindell a lock for all-time scorer

Posted by Chris Brown on February 7, 2012 – 1:24 pm

Bills kicker Rian Lindell has a brand new contract as he re-upped with Buffalo Tuesday. He also now stands a good chance of setting a brand new franchise record.

With 878 points in a Bills uniform Lindell is in striking distance of Steve Christie’s franchise scoring record of 1,011 points. Not counting this past season in which he played in just eight games, Lindell has averaged almost 102 points a season (101.75) over the last eight years. Just 133 points behind Christie, if Lindell stays healthy he should pass Christie for first place on the all-time scoring list come the middle of the 2013 season.

Lindell already holds the team record for career FG percentage (82.93%), consecutive PATs (225), single-season field goal percentage (92%, 2006) and consecutive field goals made (18).
