Matt Prater Breaks The Longest Field Goal Record

12.08.13 4 years ago 9 Comments


Tom Dempsey’s field goal record of 63 yards stood for 43 years. Three other kickers – Jason Elam, Sebastian Janikowski and Davis Akers – have tied the mark since, but none has eclipsed it until this Sunday when Matt Prater broke it at the end of the first half of the Titans-Broncos game. Worth noting that Prater’s, Janikowski’s and Elam’s kicks all happened a mile above sea level in Denver while Dempsey’s was converted more or less at sea level at Tulane Stadium.
