Mark DeWayne Moseley (born 1948 in Lanesville, Texas), is a former professional American football placekicker who played for the Philadelphia Eagles (1970), the Houston Oilers (1971-1972), the Washington Redskins (1974-1986), and the Cleveland Browns (1986). He was the last full-time straight on placekicker in the NFL; in an era where NFL kickers had long since used the soccer style that was introduced by Pete and Charlie Gogolak in the 1960's and was popularized by such players such as Jan Stenerud.

Additionally, Mark Moseley is the only kicker in NFL history to win the Most Valuable Player Award; he did so in the strike-shortened 1982 season. His team (the Redskins) went on to defeat the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XVII, in no small part due to Moseley, who kicked two field goals in the game and made all 3 of his extra point attempts. The Redskins went back to the Super Bowl the following season, facing the Los Angeles Raiders in Super Bowl XVIII, but this time they were beaten 38-9. Moseley's field goal in the first quarter was the only points for the Redskins in the first half. Then in the second half they scored a touchdown, but Moseley's extra point was blocked and they did not score again for the rest of the game.
