Matt Prater sets NFL record for longest FG made

Broncos kicker Matt Prater set a new NFL record with a 64-yard kick just before the end of the first half against the Titans.

After the kick went through the uprights, Prater's Broncos teammates ran onto the field to celebrate with him. The kick cut Tennessee's lead to 21-20 just before the half.

Heading into Sunday, four kickers had made 63-yard kicks. They were Tom Dempsey, Jason Elam, Sebastian Janikowski and David Akers.

With Prater's 64-yarder, those four move into a tie for second place on the list for longest field goal made in an NFL game.
