Thanks to some more late game heroics from Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater, fans in the Motor City are one step closer to getting some free beer.
The veteran kicker entered into a contest with Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus in which whomever makes the longest field goal of the season wins free Bud Light for fans 21 and older in their respective city.
Prater nailed a 59-yard field goal at the end of regulation this afternoon against Washington, giving Detroit a dramatic 30-27 victory. Meanwhile, McManus’ longest length this season is *only* 56 yards, and he’s never hit a field goal from longer than 57 yards.
One step closer to free beer in 2020? We’ll take it!
