The previous record-holder was Ryan Longwell (1,054), who kicked for the Packers from 1997-2005. After Crosby and Longwell on the list, it’s Hall of Fame end Don Hutson, who scored 823 points in a variety of ways from 1935-1945.
The Packers drafted Crosby, 31, in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL draft out of Colorado. Crosby has made 79.5 percent of his field goal attempts since then, including a perfect five-for-five so far this season.
