The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers have been going back and forth during Super Bowl LVIII. Not only have both teams traded the lead but they have also traded a Super Bowl record. Read below to find out more about that record.
Harrison Butker Kicks Longest Field Goal in Super Bowl History
Earlier in Super Bowl LVIII, 49ers kicker Jake Moody set the record for longest field goal in Super Bowl history. The previous record, set by Steve Christie of the Buffalo Bills, lasted for 29 years. However, the new record only lasted a little over a quarter.
Moody’s field goal was 55 yards. Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker topped this with a 57-yard field goal. Now, we will have to see how long Butker’s record will stand.
Kansas City Chiefs Moving Forward
At the time of writing, the Chiefs lead the 49ers 13-10. Butker is a big part of this, as he has seven of their first 13 points. Kansas City’s defense has held strong through three quarters. Now, we will have to see if Butker’s field goals end up being the difference in this game.
