I hate it when I can remember a player's first name but not his last. I knew the longest field goal guy was a Matt (and I even got as far as Matt P), but it didn't help me.

Matt Prater's kicking is one of the few good things about being a Lions fan. In yesterday's loss to the Packers he nailed a 56 yard field goal that probably would have been good from 70. I hope he gets the chance to break his own record someday.

In reality he got the record because he was playing in Denver's thin air. Also there was once like a 70 yard attempt that was waaaay short in like Oakland I think.

Even as a Giants fan I know that Michael Strahan's record breaking "sack" was BS.

Very surprised by that Baker Mayfield stat. I don't remember hearing about that at all. Vontaze Burfict has to have some crazy records...most on-field incidents that rise to the level of criminal conduct, maybe. Ray Lewis has the record for tackles in a season. It's still a race between Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh McCown for "guy whose very mediocre career was most often revived by superb performances at exactly the right time."

You can probably add Tannehill to that last list.

In case you're curious, Tom Brady is on pace to break Emmitt Smith's career rushing record in the year 2481.
