Top 10 career scorers:

1. Morten Andersen 2,544 1982-2007 5TM
2. Gary Anderson 2,434 1982-2004 5TM
3. Jason Hanson 2,150 1992-2012 det
4. John Carney 2,062 1988-2010 7TM
5. Matt Stover 2,004 1991-2009 3TM
6. George Blanda+ 2,002 1949-1975 4TM
7. Jason Elam 1,983 1993-2009 2TM
8. Adam Vinatieri 1,972 1996-2013 2TM
9. John Kasay 1,970 1991-2011 3TM
10. Norm Johnson 1,736 1982-1999 4TM
Jerry Rice is the first non-kicker at 31.

But QBs are not considered to have scored. The points go to the receivers. Peyton would have 2886 passing points.
