Matt Prater breaks NFL record with 64-yard field goal for Broncos


TOPICS:
, , , ,

With time expiring in the second quarter, Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater lined up for a 64-yard field goal. If good, he would own the NFL record for longest field goal in history.

Prater unleashed a cannon of a kick, drilling it with plenty of distance to spare. Just like that, Tom Dempsey’s 43-year-old record of 63 yards fell.

The score brought the Broncos within one point, 21-20, of the Tennessee Titans heading into the half. Earlier in the game, Prater hit a 25-yard field goal.
