Of all the great kickers the New York Giants have had over the years, none may be greater than their current kicker, Graham Gano.

Gano, 34, a former Pro Bowler for the Carolina Panthers, has only been with the club two seasons and has already shattered several franchise records.

From the Giants:

He has made 50 of 53 attempts with the Giants, a 94.3 percentage that is the best in team history for kickers with at least 50 attempts. Josh Brown held the former mark by hitting 91.7% (88 of 96) from 2013-16.

Gano’s 94.3 percentage is the second highest among all kickers with at least 40 attempts since the start of the 2020 season. Atlanta’s Younghoe Koo is first at 94.4% (51-for-54). Koo’s 40-yard field goal as time expired gave the Falcons a 17-14 victory against the Giants on Sept. 26.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Gano is the third kicker to make at least 50 of his first 53 field goal attempts with one team. The others are Josh Lambo (50 with Jacksonville) and former Giant Robbie Gould (50 with San Francisco).

Gano also holds the team record for most consecutive field goals (37) and the most 50-plus yard attempts with 10, breaking the former Giants record of nine that Joe Danelo had held since 1982.

The former Florida State standout has made 19 of 21 attempts (90.5%) this season, second in the NFL behind New England’s Nick Folk, who has 21. Gano has also made all 12 of his extra point attempts. His 69 points scored is the sixth-highest total among kickers this season.
