Here are the Lester’s Legends kicker rankings for the the AFC and NFC Conference Championship Games of the 2012-13 NFL Playoffs.
1. Stephen Gostkowski, New England Patriots
Gostkowski led the NFL in scoring with 29 field goals and 66 extra points. He had a pair of field goals and five extra points. New England is the league’s top scoring offense, so Gostkowski should continue to put points on the board. The Baltimore Ravens allowed a league-high 37 field goals during the regular season, along with 31 extra points. They have allowed three field goals and five extra points in their two playoff games.
2. David Akers, San Francisco 49ers
Akers shrugged off the competition with Billy Cundiff and the 13 missed field goals on the year to make his lone field-goal attempt and six extra points in the win over the Green Bay Packers. He will be kicking in a dome this week, and that should help his chances. The Atlanta Falcons allowed 27 field goals and 30 extra points in the regular season.
3. Justin Tucker, Baltimore Ravens
Tucker finished the regular season eighth in scoring with 30 field goals and 42 extra points. He has a pair of field goals and eight extra points in two playoff games. The New England Patriots allowed 21 field goals and 38 extra points during the regular season, and they allowed two field goals and two extra points in the win over the Houston Texans.
4. Matt Bryant, Atlanta Falcons
Perhaps Matt Bryant is the new "Matty Ice" after he shrugged off Pete Carroll’s attempt to ice him on last week’s game-winning field-goal attempt. Bryant drilled it, along with two other field goals and three extra points. On the season, he finished third in the NFL in scoring with 33 field goals and 44 extra points. The 49ers allowed 22 field goals and 27 extra points during the regular season.
