Chiefs Vs. Raiders: Ryan Succop Has Chance To Set Franchise Kicking Records Today

Ryan Succop has been the best draft pick to come from Scott Pioli’s first overall draft class from 2009. The Chiefs kicker not only helped establish new rookie records his first year in the league, but now he holds the longest active streak in the NFL for consecutive field goals made with 21. He only needs one more to tie the Chiefs’ franchise record of 22 set by Pete Stoyanovich.

“I don’t necessarily think about all the records or anything like that,” Succop told the Washington Post. “Hopefully I’ll be able to go out and make the next one, and if we do that, we’ll kick the one after that.”

“It’s his work ethic, the way he approaches his job, the way he goes about it,” said Chiefs interim coach Romeo Crennel. “He takes it very seriously, and any time he feels like he’s off, he’ll do extra work, kick extra balls, work with the holder and the snapper, anything he can do.”

As the AP reports, “Succop doesn’t have the strongest leg in the league, and it’s unlikely he’ll ever boot a 63-yarder like the Raiders’ Sebastian Janikowski did earlier this year. But he is making a push for the claim that he’s the most accurate. Only seven kickers have connected at a higher rate this season, and of course, none since the soft-spoken Succop started his streak of consecutive made field goals.”
