This season two players were close to breaking the NFL record for the longest field goal ever in Week 3. Let's check out other goals that have covered the longest yards.
The NFL has had five 62-yard field goals. In 2018, Brett Maher had it out for the Dallas Cowboys in 2018. He did the same in 2019 as well. Then later in 2017, Stephen Gostkowski while playing for the New England Patriots made this record, while Matt Bryant made it first in 2006 while playing for Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In 2019, Maher had a 63-yarder for the Cowboys and in 2011 Sebastian Janikowski while playing for the Raiders had made this record. The first ever 63-yard record was made by Tom Dempsey of the Saints in 1970, and later in 1998, Jason Elam of the Broncos pulled it off again.
This is believed to be the longest one in NFL history. Justin Tucker made a 66-yard field goal, while playing in Detroit. He's scored 16 out of 16 field goals during his career.
Although this record happens to have been made during a college game, it is one of the goals to have covered the longest yard. It was set in 1976 at Abilene Christian University.
