Lions Kicker Passed Former Kicker in 50 Plus Yard Field Goals
Lions kicker, Matt Prater has been one of the few consistent pieces of the Lions the past few years. After their final game, he passed a Lions legend on long field goals made.
According to Detroit News, Prater passed Lions great, Jason Hanson for 2nd on the all time list of 50 plus yard field goals.
His 56 yard field goal Sunday was good enough to have him take over second on the list for Lions great, Jason Hanson.
He now has 53 field goals beyond 50 yards in his career. Included in his total is the all time record of 64 yards as a member of the Denver Broncos in 2013.
Prater is behind former Raiders kicker, Sebastian Janikowski on the list. Janikowski has 58.
The Lions have had some great kickers over the years not only Prater and Hanson but also the great Eddie Murray.
We'll see if Prater can continue to be one of the elite kickers in the NFL as he has one more season left on his current contract.
