The 30 Longest Field Goals in NFL History, From Tucker to Prater

Making a field goal during a football game is hard. Don't listen to anyone who tells you otherwise.

The pressure alone makes it tough and opposing players trying to block a kick only adds to the difficulty.

Remember this the next time you blame the kicker for your teams loss. Despite all this, somehow, the best NFL kickers make it look easy.

Throughout the years, there have been some incredible legs to blast pigskins through the uprights.

A few of them have even made the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It's definitely not the most glamorous job in the world, but it can do more than just pay the bills if you're one of the best at it.

As for the longest field goal in NFL history, that used to belong to former Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater, who boomed a 64-yarder back in 2013.

That changed during the 2021 season when the Baltimore Ravens and Detroit Lions met at Ford Field, and Justin Tucker etched his name in the record books.
