Top Ten Longest Field Goals of the 2014 NFL Season
See Which NFL Kickers Nailed the Longest FGs in the First Half of 2014
2014 NFL Season
Last year, Matt Prater, who was playing for the Broncos at the time (then he got suspended and ended up in Detroit, which somehow seems fitting) broke the NFL’s field goal record with a 64 yard kick (at Denver, but still…) We haven’t had any broken records yet this year in the field goal kicking arena, but today we’re going to look at the longest kicks of the year so far.

1. The Buffalo Bills’ Dan Carpenter is currently sitting at the top of the league with a 58-yard kick he made earlier this season.
2. Dan Bailey, kicker for the maybe-for-real Dallas Cowboys, kicked a 56 yarder this year.
(2*) 3. The St. Louis Rams’ Greg Zuerlein has also already nailed a 56-yard kick in 2014.
4. The San Francisco 49ers’ Phil Dawson (and a bunch of other players, as you’ll see) kicked a 55 yarder in a game this year.
(4*) 5. Mason Crosby, the Green Bay Packers’ kicker, also hit a 55-yard kick with ease.
(4*) 6. The Minnesota Vikings’ Blair Walsh is another member of the 55-yard club this year.
(4*) 7. Randy Bullock, who kicks for the Houston Texans, has also already kicked a 55-yard FG in 2014.
(4*) 8. Patrick Murray, kicker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (whose season is not going as planned…yikes), is the final kicker to have already put-up a 55 yarder this season.
9. The Atlanta Falcons’ Matt Bryant hit a 54-yard FG earlier in 2014.
10. The Oakland Raiders’ Sebastian Janikowski, who sounds more like a classical pianist than an NFL player, kicked a 53-yard FG for his club this year.
(10*) 11. Stephen Gostkowski, the New England Patriots’ kicker, also nailed a 53 yarder earlier this year.
(10*) 12. Last, but not least, the Carolina Panthers’ Graham Gano (who’s a pretty good kicker when he isn’t shooing marching band members out of the way) also made good on a 53-yard attempt already this NFL season.
