That is a loooong kick!

Tom Dempsey and a few others have kicked 63 yard field goals. I always thought Dempsey's special shoe helped him kick longer field goals.Tom Dempsey is most widely known for his then NFL record 63-yard field goal, kicked in the final two seconds to give the New Orleans Saints a 19–17 win over the Detroit Lions on November 8, 1970 at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans. This record stood until December 8, 2013, when Matt Prater of the Denver Broncos kicked a 64-yarder against the Tennessee Titans at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver.

Last week Gould on the Bears attempted a 66 yard field goal but he wasn't even close.
