Chiefs’ Harrison Butker kicks a 77-yard basket on an empty practice ground

Chief kicker Harrison Butker is capable of practicing his trade while practicing social distancing, and has published an impressive video of a training session.

Butker tweeted a video of himself on an empty soccer field, kicking a 77-yard field. Butker admitted he had a strong wind behind his back, but 77 yards is impressive if a tornado hits the ball.

The NFL record for the longest basket is 64 meters, by Matt Prater in Denver in 2013. Kicking without anyone trying to block the basket obviously helps.

With sports fans desperate to watch a competition, perhaps several NFL kickers could go to vacant fields and record the kicks themselves, to see which can make the longest goal.
