What is the longest Field Goal kicked in the NFL that wasn't in Denver.?

We all know Field Goals in Denver are easier because of the thinner air in the Mile High City.

But how about outside Denver?

  • Tom Dempsey kicked a 63 Yard Field Goal for The New Orleans Saints in New Orleans over 50 Years ago. I think The Saints were playing The Atlanta Falcon.

    The difference in air drag is so minimal as to be negligible. Even the lightest breeze has more effect. So you thinking that's why the longest field goal so far was kicked in Denver is unfounded. But in answer to your question, the second-longest field goal, only one yard shorter, was kicked in New Orleans, which is at seal-level and where air is thickest, thus punching a hole in your little theory because if what you were saying had any truth to it, field goal records would tend to fall in decreasing order by the altitude of the city in which they were kicked, but they don't.

    63 Yards - Tom Dempsey - New Orleans Saints - 1970 - Tulane Stadium
