Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan isn’t the only player breaking records during the team’s Week 15 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Younghoe Koo tied, and then broke former Falcons kicker Matt Bryant’s record for most field goals made in a single season. Koo netted a short-range field goal as the first half came to a close to increase his total to 34, before making it 35 with another second-half conversion.

Koo’s conversion rate of 97 percent is the highest in Falcons history. Bryant’s highest conversion rate was 95 percent in 2018 when he netted 20 kicks on 21 attempts.

Editorial Update: This story has been updated to reflect Koo breaking Bryant’s record.
