30. Nick Lowery

The kicking game in professional football is a job that has a fickle fan base for sure but the Chiefs fans were certainly happy with the man who held that position for them from 1980 to 1993.

Nick Lowery had only one field goal attempt with the New England Patriots in 1978 and arguably there was not a lot expected of the Kicker when he entered training camp in 1980 for the Chiefs.  He would win the job and over the next decade plus he would be one of the most consistent Place Kickers in the National Football League.  Lowery would be a three time Pro Bowl and two time First Team All Pro with Kansas City and he would lead the league in Field Goal Percentage three times.  He is currently tenth all-time in Points scored and is the all-time Points leader with the Chiefs.
