It took 43 years, but someone finally broke Tom Dempsey's record for the NFL's longest field goal. Denver's Matt Prater kicked a 64-yarder at the end of the first half Sunday against Tennessee, just clearing the crossbar to beat the mark by a yard. The kick trimmed the Titans' lead to 21-20. Dempsey set the record in 1970 with the New Orleans Saints, and the mark was subsequently tied by Denver's Jason Elam (1998), Oakland's Sebastian Janikowski (2011) and San Francisco's David Akers (2012)

'You know the saying, "Break glass in case of emergency"? We broke the glass and he came through.' Rod Smith, Denver Bronco receiver, on Ron Dayne's 55-yard run in overtime that helped set up Jason Elam's game-winning 24-yard field goal against Dallas

David Akers of the San Francisco 49ers became the second player in as many years to tie the NFL record for the length of a field goal when he made one from 63 yards just before halftime against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday afternoon. Akers drilled a line drive just over the Packers line that carried to the goal posts, clipping the crossbar as it tumbled through. Sebastian Janikowski of the Oakland Raiders kicked a 63-yarder against the Broncos last September in Denver. Tom Dempsey of the New Orleans Saints set the record in 1970 in a game against the Detroit Lions.

DENVER -- The Denver Broncos took the city's minds off the Colorado Rockies for a few hours, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-28, on Jason Elam's 49-yard field goal as time expired. "We want to do this whole Rockies thing, 21 out of 22, that works for us," Elam said.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Jason Elam, who has scored more points for one team than anyone in NFL history, made a 42-yard field goal just before time ran out to lift the Denver Broncos to a 15-14 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Elam, who had missed two field-goal tries, almost didn't have a chance to make up for it. The Broncos were out of timeouts when Jay Cutler connected with Javon Walker on an 11-yard pass with 14 seconds left.

Denver kicker Jason Elam is expected to miss at least three weeks after breaking parts of two vertebrae in his lower back while trying to make a tackle in Sunday's victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Elam spent the night at Swedish Medical Center, and tests revealed fractures to the transverse process of the L-2 and L-3 vertebrae in his lower back. The transverse process is the winglike projection that extends laterally from both sides of each vertebra.

New Orleans loves to party. If Tom Dempsey hadn't already grasped that hoary truism, it became abundantly clear to him Nov. 8, 1970. That's the day that Dempsey, born with no toes on his right foot, kicked the longest field goal in NFL history. The 63-yard boot, providing a rare highlight in an otherwise dismal New Orleans Saints season, gave the home team an improbable last-second victory over the visiting Detroit Lions and touched off an impromptu French Quarter frenzy.

Little was expected of Terrell Davis when the unheralded running back from Georgia was selected in the sixth round of the NFL draft in 1995. Expectations have changed dramatically since. Davis rushed for a club-record 215 yards, including a 50-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter, and the Denver Broncos stayed unbeaten with a 38-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. "Two years ago when I ran for 100 yards, everybody praised me," Davis said.

The Denver Broncos can thank the people who rescued Jason Elam from the weekend blizzard in Denver for their victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Elam, stranded along the side of the road for more than five hours Saturday in the snowstorm that hit Denver, kicked three field goals, including a 33-yarder with 1:56 left in overtime, to lift the Broncos to a 23-20 victory. "It was a fun closure to a crazy weekend," Elam said. "It's definitely something I won't forget for a very long time."
