Janikowski had also missed on a 64-yard attempt in 2007, and missed a 76-yard attempt in 2008.
The Broncos took over on their own 15-yard line with 52 seconds remaining in the first half. After a false start to open the drive, the Broncos moved to their own 46 in six plays, including an 18-yard completion from Peyton Manning to Demaryius Thomas to convert a third-and-10.
A 7-yard completion from Manning to tight end Jacob Tamme put the Broncos in position for the kick with three seconds remaining in the half. Prater consistently hits 60-yarders in pregame warm-ups and consistently hits kicks longer than 60 yards in practice.
It was the 20th kick of at least 50 yards Prater has made in his career. He is now 20-of-26 on attempts of at least 50 yards, the most accurate mark since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 for kickers with at least 20 of such attempts.
