1) Stephen Gostkowski, NE

Stephen Gostkowski dominated 2014 while a member of the New England Patriots. He knocked in 35 of 37 and was perfect on extra points with 51. His longest came on a 53-yard field goal, which was his only attempt of 50 or more yards all season long. He was perfect from 20-29 yards and went 12-13 from 40-49 yards. The 29-year-old is very deserving of this number one spot and has plenty of opportunities to hit the uprights while playing for Tom Brady and the Patriots alike.
