On Monday Night Football, the Detroit Lions may have lost to the Green Bay Packers 23-22, but it surely was not the fault of kicker Matt Prater, who drilled five field goals during the game.
Two of those field goals were from over 50+ yards out (51 and 54), giving him a whopping 50 career field goals of 50+ yards. That total puts him in a club with only two other kickers, former Lions great Jason Hanson and The Polish Cannon himself, Sebastian Janikowski.

Overall, Prater is now No. 33 all-time with 286 field goals made. Hanson is No. 4 on the all-time list with 495 field goals made.
Since joining the Lions, Prater has connected on 29 of 38 attempts from 50+ yards.
