On the Rise

JOSH BROWN
Rams
The former Seahawk brings his 80% career field-goal rate indoors to the Edward Jones Dome.

MASON CROSBY
Packers
Unless there's a Brett Favre return, the NFL scoring leader's extra-point total will fall, but his field-goal chances should skyrocket.

SHAUN SUISHAM
Redskins
Washington's new offense will drive his points total north.

On the Decline

JASON ELAM
Falcons
After 15 years of kicking in Mile High, he falls to the depths of the NFL with Atlanta.

DAVID AKERS
Eagles
In the last four seasons he's gone from being the NFL's second-most accurate kicker alltime to 14th.

JASON HANSON
Lions
Detroit's new conservative offense will mean fewer chances for the longest-suffering Lion.
