George Blanda was the first NFL player to score 2,000 points and is still only one of six players to have reached that milestone. He did it on the last day of the regular season in 1975.

Blanda’s rookie season was in 1949, with the Chicago Bears. He played quarterback for them and also was their kicker until his first retirement in 1958. Blanda came out of retirement in 1960, joining the Houston Oilers, as their quarterback and kicker. From 1967 until he retired in 1975, he was the kicker for the Oakland Raiders.
