Harrison Butker tied Nick Lowrey’s franchise record of 58-yards on a field goal. In fact, Butker did it three times! Once earlier in the game, then in overtime to beat the Los Angeles Chargers 23-20 in overtime. Before the overtime kick, Butker converted a practice attempt from 58-yards as L.A. called timeout just before the snap. No problems for Butker. The timeout gave him more time to adjust. His game winner was even better than the practice kick.

After a slow start, the Chiefs offense got moving in the second half as the Chargers defense tired out after putting immense pressure on Patrick Mahomes through much of the first half. Mahomes completed 27-of-47 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns in the game, finding Tyreek Hill five times for a team-high 99 yards.
The 58-yarder by Butker in OT is the longest in NFL history
Longest Field Goals in NFL Overtime History

53 – Chris Jacke, Packers vs. 49ers, Oct. 4, 1996
52 – Mike Cofer, Colts vs. Jets, Sept. 10, 1995
The victory was Kansas City’s 28th victory in 31 divisional matchups since the beginning of the 2015 season, which is the most for any team against their own division in the NFL during that span. The Chiefs return to action next week with a prime-time showdown with the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football.
