As the first half came to a close it was time for wily veteran kicker David Akers to be asked to do the impossible– kick an entirely ridiculous 63-yard FG. The result was just as ridiculous as the request as in a moment of 'lets throw this at the wall', Akers drilled the FG low, it bounced off the crossbar straight in the air, and dribbled over. This ties the NFL record for the longest field goal ever made, as Akers joins Jason Elam, Sebastian Janikowski and Tom Dempsey.
Given the circumstances, and the rarity of what happened, we got an appropriate reaction from David Akers of utter astonishment, and child-like wonderment.
And here's video of the field goal. Listen for the DOINK!
We tip our collective hats to you sir! I haven't seen ecstasy like this since... wait, scratch that, forget I said anything.
