Bryant Sets New Franchise Record in Field Goals Made

Posted Nov 13, 2016

For the second time this season, placekicker Matt Bryant broke an all-time Falcons record.

With a 46-yard conversion in the third quarter of Sunday’s contest in Philadelphia, Matt Bryant broke the franchise record for field goals made (185), surpassing Morten Andersen. This is the second major record Bryant has broken in 2016: On Oct. 30, an extra point against Green Bay made him the team’s all-time points leader — a title Andersen also held in the past.

Bryant, 41, made his first 23 of 25 field goal attempts this year. Both of his two misses have come from 50-plus yards out.
