You know it was going to happen soon. Kickers are getting better and better each year. Matt Prater of the Denver Broncos just set the NFL record for the longest field goal ever made at 64 yards. The kick came just as time expired during the first half against the Tennessee Titans.
The previous record was 63 yards. Four kickers had accomplished it: Tom Dempsey (1970), Jason Elam (1998), Sebastian Janikowski (2011), and David Akers (2012).
