NFL All-Time Leading Scorers: Highest Scoring Players in League History


While offense and defense get the bulk of the credit and admiration from fans, football is truly a game of three phases. Special teams are crucial to success in the NFL, and nothing better highlights that than a look at the leaderboard for the NFL's all-time leading scorers.

That list is absolutely dominated by kickers, highlighted by the now-retired Adam Vinatieri, who scored 2,673 points over his career.

Here's a look at the NFL's top all-time leading scorers.

NFL All-Time Leading Scorer Among Non-Kickers

The NFL's leading scorer of all time for non-kickers is Jerry Rice, who scored 1,256 points. That ranks 38th all-time and gives him fewer than half as many points as Vinatieri in first place. Rice is the only non-kicker to rank in the top 50.
