Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater set an NFL record at the end of the second quarter by kicking a 64-yard field goal in Denver

Here is a GIF of the kick from Fansided GIF:

The record-breaking field goal brought the Broncos to within one-point of tying the Tennessee Titans by a 21-20 score at halftime. Prater broke a record previously held by Tom Dempsy and Jason Elam, which was set at 63 yards.

Per ESPN, it was the 20th kick of at least 50 yards Prater has made in his career. He is now 20-of-26 on attempts of at least 50 yards, the most accurate mark since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 for kickers with at least 20 of such attempts.
