Gostkowski didn’t even know he moved past Patriots legend Gino Cappelletti for points scored in a season in the 34-20 bye-clinching win over Buffalo. By making all four of his field goal attempts and adding two extra points, Gostkowski finished the season with 158 points. Cappelletti’s mark of 155 had stood since 1964.
