    Jerrel Wilson and Jan Stenerud
    Chiefs.

    Wilson led in avg yards per kick
    5 times and Stenerud revolutionized
    field goal kicking.

    1962-1965 Cleveland Browns.
    Lou "the toe" Groza handled all the place-kicking.
    Gary Collins did the punting as well as being the teams Flanker.

    Groza played 21 years, all but the last 7-8 years as a kicker and offensive tackle, holding most kicking records at the time of his retirement. Collins was the 1964 Championship Game MVP and had a career punting average of 41.0 yards, his best season being 1965 when he led the NFL with an average of 46.7 yards. Groza is in the HOF, Collins not yet but maybe.

    Ray Guy and George Blanda were a terrific pair with Blanda being quite a good QB.

    The Patriots will have the greatest Kicker/Punter on their roster next season after he's finished his training. 😉

    These were the first two pairs that came to my mind and they were all great. I'll go with the Chiefs combo as #1.

    This is for you @thisistheshow - Jim Rice was actually a pretty good player.

    Matt Prater and Sam Martin for the Lions

    Martin average 46.0 yards per punt for Detroit, including 48.5 in 2016

    Prater made 84% of his FGs for Detroit, include 73% (!) from beyond 50, including 58 at least twice and 59 at least twice.

    Of course I am a huge fan of both of these guys. Still, there were a few elements of this that ruled me a wee bit. This is a random time to say it, but as I go in in life it's getting harder and harder for me to consume commercially produced things involving athletes,nor media people, or celebrities.
