Arizona Cardinals kicker Matt Prater previously held the league’s field-goal record when he hit a 64-yarder for the Denver Broncos against the San Francisco 49ers in a game Dec. 8, 2013.

To set up the game-winner, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson connected with wideout Sammy Watkins on a 36-yard pass and catch on fourth-and-19 with seven seconds left in the game. Jackson followed that up with a spike and then threw the ball away before Tucker’s kick.
