Inside the Numbers: Gano re-writes record book


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Graham Gano has played only 25 games for the Giants, but he has already inserted his name throughout the field goal section of the franchise's record book.

On Sunday, Gano kicked field goals of 35, 32, and 38 yards without a miss in a 23-16 victory against the Las Vegas Raiders. 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).

Earlier this season, Gano kicked his 10th field goal of 50 or more yards in a Giants uniform, eclipsing the former Giants record of nine that Joe Danelo had held since 1982.

When Gano joined the Giants last season, the franchise single season record for 50+ yard field goals was four, shared by Brown and Aldrick Rosas. Gano kicked five, including a franchise single-game record of three, and has matched that total this year.

Gano also extended his team record to 37 consecutive successful attempts before missing a 35-yard try in New Orleans on Oct. 3. His only other miss this year was a 54-yard attempt in Dallas the following week – when he also kicked a pair of 51-yard field goals.

This season, Gano has made 19 of 21 attempts (90.5%), a strong follow-up to his Giants debut season a year ago, when he hit 31 of 32 tries (96.9%). His 19 field goals place him second in the NFL, behind New England's Nick Folk, who has 21. Gano, who has made all 12 of his extra point tries, has scored 69 points, the sixth-highest total among kickers.

Sunday's game was the 44th in which Gano has kicked at least three field goals since he entered the NFL with Washington in 2009. That is the fifth-highest total among active kickers.

Among active kickers, Gano's 274 field goals rank sixth, his 326 attempts are seventh and his 84.05 percentage ranks 11th (minimum: 100 attempts).
