The game for kicker Jay Feely just keeps providing nuggets of fun. The latest is this: Feely’s 22 straight points Sunday — after the Broncos’ took a 3-0 lead, it was all-Feely, all the time until another Denver field goal made it 22-6 — was the longest string of one player scoring points in a game since Packer Hall of Famer Paul Hornung had 24 straight against the Baltimore Colts Oct. 8, 1961. (Big props to the Elias Sports Bureau and Cards’ stats wizard Mike Helm for delving into the subject).
Hornung kicked a field goal to start, and then added three straight touchdowns (kicking the corresponding point-afters) on a pair of one-yard runs and an eight-yard TD catch.
Of course, I bet Hornung didn’t finish one of his TDs with a leap into the stands.
