Prater Kicks Record Field Goal

About the Blog

Any successful field goal kick depends on the snap and hold in addition to the kick.  An NFL record was broken yesterday when Matt Prater of the Broncos kicked a 64 yard field goal in Denver.

Aaron Brewer made the flawless snap on this history-making kick, although he acknowledged after the game he had no idea at the time the kick would break the record.  Instead, Brewer admitted he was more concerned about running down the field to cover the kick to avoid an Auburn-Alabama situation from a couple of weeks ago, when a long field goal attempt was returned by Auburn for a game-winning touchdown.
