Bryant Breaks Franchise Points Record

Posted Oct 30, 2016

In his 103rd game with the Falcons, Matt Bryant broke the franchise points record with an extra point in the first quarter.

With 4:28 left in the first quarter of Sunday’s contest against Green Bay, Matt Bryant broke Morten Andersen’s franchise record in points by notching his 807th point as a Falcon.

It took Bryant 103 games to reach that mark; Andersen gained 806 points in 124 contests.

“It’d be awesome,” Bryant said on Thursday about breaking the record “It’s not something you really set out to accomplish, but when it gets closer, I guess other people will tell you what’s going on. So yeah, it’d be neat to have that feather in your hat, so to speak.”

Bryant has made 16 of 17 field goals this season and all 25 extra points. His field goal percentage as a Falcon (88.1) is the highest in team history among those who made 50-plus attempts.
