Cundiff plays through pain and into record book

A left calf injury didn’t prevent kicker Billy Cundiff from rewriting a portion of the Ravens’ record book.

With a 36-yard field goal near the end of the first quarter and three extra points in Sunday's 24-10 win against the Indianapolis Colts, Cundiff passed former running back Jamal Lewis for second place on the franchise’s all-time scoring list with 286 career points.

Cundiff now trails Matt Stover, who ranks first with 1,464 points.

“It is an honor,” Cundiff said. “Obviously, the guy that’s in front of me, I think his scoring record is something that no one’s going to match for a long time. There’s absolutely no chance for me to get it. I did the math, and I would have to be something like 45 [years old]. So that’s just not attainable. I think it’s a testament to Stover and how well he played and how long he played for that number to be so high. For me to be second at that number, for other organizations, that might put you higher.”
