49ers K David Akers breaks NFL FG record

San Francisco kicker David Akers has set the NFL record for most

field goals in one season with his 41st.

Akers made a 44-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter on

Saturday against Seattle. It was his third made field goal of the

game after earlier connecting from 53 and 29 yards.

Akers missed a 52-yard attempt in the first quarter, just his

seventh missed kick of the season. For the year, Akers is 41 of 48

on field goals.

Neil Rackers held the previous record with 40 made field goals

set in the 2005 season while playing for Arizona.
