Tampa Bay field goal kicker Ryan Succop once played for the Chiefs.  He signed a one-year deal with the Bucs back in September.

Some highlights from Wikipedia:

In Week 8 against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football, Succop was 4-for-4 on field goals during the 25–23 win.

On November 4, 2020, Succop was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week in Week 8.

In Week 17 against the Atlanta Falcons, Succop went 3-for-3 on field goals and 5-for-5 on extra point in a 44–27 win. Succop was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for this.

Kansas City field goal kicker Harrison Butker onverted all four extra point attempts and his only field goal attempt, a 31-yarder in the second quarter, in last year's Super Bowl.

After his fifth missed extra point of the season in a week 7 game against the Denver Broncos, Butker set a career high for missed extra points in a season despite only attempting 24 extra points up to that point.  Combining the regular and postseason through the divisional round, Butker's 49-for-56 on extra points this season.

Butker is actually the second-most accurate field goal kicker in NFL history. He's less than four-tenths of a percentage point behind Justin Tucker.

Butker commented on his early season struggles that made a reappearance in the game against the Cleveland Browns, a lone field goal miss against from the 33-yard extra point distance. 

“Looking back at the tape I think the biggest issue with the PATs, except for one, has been where I’m starting the kick at,” Butker said on Oct. 30, according to Sports Illustrated. “The one in Buffalo was kind of the outlier, I started right and stayed right. But the other ones have all been balls that have been tilling to the left, or even that field goal against the Ravens.”
