Justin Tucker breaks NFL record for longest FG with game-winning kick
One NFL record has come tumbling down in incredible fashion!
On Sunday afternoon, the Baltimore Ravens lined up for a game-winning field goal attempt vs. the Lions. The only problem? The kick would be a 66-yard attempt for Justin Tucker.
With ice in his veins, Tucker lined up the shot and gave it his absolute best. The kick was pure but the length was in question for some time. Tucker’s attempt even hit the crossbar, adding some extra anticipation to the try.
The kick finally bounced through to win the game and set a new NFL record for the longest field goal. Check it out:
