Kicking Opportunities

Last year David Akers headed to San Francisco via free agency, joining a 49ers team that in prior years had not generated very many kicking opportunities. But that was not the case in 2011, as they provided Akers with 34 extra point attempts and 52 field goal attempts - from which he generated an NFL record 166 points out of a possible 190. The highest possible kicking score in league history probably occurred in 1983. The Washington Redskins provided Mark Moseley with 63 extra point attempts and 47 field goal attempts. He converted for 161 points out of a possible 204.

Which NFL teams have provided their kicker with scoring opportunities in recent years? Following are the annual team ranking in kicking points attempted. Top five rankings are highlighted in yellow, and top ten in green.
