Matt Prater smoked a 64-yard field goal on Sunday, setting a new NFL record.
We've seen several NFL kickers bomb field goals from longer than 60 yards, but never as deep as 64 yards. Until today: Broncos kicker Matt Prater unleashed his leg cannon for an NFL record 64-yard field goal as the second quarter expired against the Titans.

One of the previous record holders for a field goal of 63 yards was Jason Elam, who was with the Broncos in 1998 when he made that field goal. Tom Dempsey of the Saints also hit a 63 yarder in 1970.
