This Week in Steelers Stats: Highs and Lows of Steelers Kicking

A compilation of Steelers statistics from myself and from various Tweets over the past week.

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Compiling statistics can take hours upon hours in order to find the proper numbers. To save you the trouble, here are some of the best statistics about the Steelers from the past week.

I will begin with a few statistics of my own before going on to other various Steeler sources. Feel free to follow me on Twitter @STLRSuperFanDad in order to get some of BTSC’s geekiest stats.

From The Steelers Preview podcast:

The Steelers have had five kickers reach the Pro Bowl with a total of nine selections:

Chris Boswell: 2017

Gary Anderson: 1983, 1985, and 1993

Roy Gerela: 1972 and 1974

Mike Clark: 1966

Lou Michaels: 1962 and 1963

The longest field goal in Pittsburgh Steelers history is 55 yards by Gary Anderson in 1984 and Kris Brown in 2001.

The longest field goal attempted by a Pittsburgh Steeler was 65 yards by Jeff Reed in 2007 in Denver. It was not made.

Now onto some other crazy Steelers stats:
