The Broncos entered the half down only 20-21 to the Tennessee Titans thanks to Prater's record-setting kick.
Denver was 18 degrees at opening kickoff, making Prater's kick all the more impressive. It was basically a leathery icecube that Prater sailed through the uprights 64 yards away.
Four kicks had been made from 63 yards previous to Prater's record-breaking attempt, including one by longtime Broncos kicker Jason Elam, the franchises' all-time leader in points scored. Now, again, a Broncos kicker stands alone atop the record books.
Way to go Matt Prater! Awesome! Way to keep it in the Broncos family! I'm very proud and excited for you!
