Another Record Breaking Field Goal (19-17’s) The Lions

September 26, 2021

Really it only matters for money line, teaser, and survivor contest players, yet having cared about pro pig in 1970, I cite that when Justin Tucker set an NFL record with a 66 yard field goal, called somewhat blandly by one of the few good network announcers, Greg Gumbel, history repeated itself. (Ode to Mr. Santayana)!

In aforementioned ’70, Tom Dempsey booted a then record 63 yard field goal on the game’s last play lifting the Saints (19-17) vs the Detroit Lions.

Today Tucker’s record breaker was from 66 yards, again handing the Lions a (19-17) loss.

Click below to hear and see Dempsey’s historic field with an epic call by Don Criqui, the television announcer that day.
