Matt Prater

Denver Broncos Matt Prater kicked a record 64-yard field goal on the final play of the first half of an National Football League game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

The goal kick broke the previous record of 63 yards shared by Tom Dempsey (1970), Jason Elam (1998), Sebastian Janikowski (2011) and David Akers (2011).
Prater, 29, had a previous career best of 59 yards.
Janikowski missed on a 64-yard attempt in 2007. He also attempted a 76 yarder a year later.
This marked the 20th kick of at least 50 yards for Prater who has attempted 26 field goals from 50 yards or longer.

Denver Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, centre, runs with the ball after an interception during the third quarter at Sports Authority Field Field on Sunday in Denver, Colo.
