September 10, 2012|By Chuck Schilken

“When you hit the goalpost, whether it’s the crossbar or the upright, it usually makes a really loud and obnoxious sound coming back at you. It went through and I think that’s about the biggest miracle I’ve seen in a long time.”

Akers has made 22 field goals of 50 yards or more during his 15-year NFL career. His previous best was a 57-yarder for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2003.
