Chris Boswell Could Reach Big Franchise Milestones In 2023
When it comes to kickers in the NFL that have shown consistency, there are few that have been better than Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell.
Since joining the Steelers in 2015, Boswell has been recognized as one of the most accomplished kickers in NFL history.
As of 2023, Boswell sits third in franchise history in made field goals with 202. In front of him are Jeff Reed, who accumulated 204 made field goals from 2002–2010, and legendary kicker Gary Anderson, who sits well in front all-time with 309.
This upcoming season, Boswell has the chance of surpassing Reed in this category, as well as legendary Steelers kicker Roy Gerela, in both extra points attempted and extra points made.
During his career, Boswell has set or tied numerous franchise kicking records, including the most field goals made by a rookie or first-year player in franchise history (29), the most points by a rookie/first-year kicker (113), and rookie/first-year field goal percentage (90.6). Boswell also set the playoff record for most field goals made in a postseason game with six in their 2016 Divisional Round win against the Kansas City Chiefs.
