After connecting on an extra point attempt, kicker Matt Bryant became the Falcons’ career leader in points scored.

Bryant passed Morten Andersen’s previous record of 806 career points in the first quarter Sunday in Atlanta’s (4-3) game against the Green Bay Packers (4-2). He now sits at 807 career points.

He tied Andersen’s record earlier in the quarter on a 36-yard field goal on Atlanta’s opening drive.
