Harrison Butker breaks Super Bowl record set earlier in the same game
Harrison Butker is on a dominant run of long-range field goals for the Kansas City Chiefs, and he put his leg on display once again in Super Bowl LVIII.
In the second half, the Chiefs called on Butker for a 57-yard field goal attempt. His attempt was a low line drive to get the necessary distance, and it was just high enough to avoid getting blocked and split the uprights.
Harrison Butker sets a new Super Bowl record with a 57-yard FG, previously set by Jake Moody earlier this game. ?

Butker’s kick also gives him 9 straight field goals made on tries of 50+ yards. He was 33-for-35 overall on field goals this season, and he delivered another kick from 50+ yards in the AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens.
The 57-yard kick for Butker gives the Georgia Tech product the longest field goal in Super Bowl history. He snaps a record that is just a few hours old with San Francisco 49ers kicker Jake Moody setting the previous record of 55 yards in the second quarter.
The field goal by Butker made it 10-6 in favor of the 49ers but a disastrous turnover by San Franciso allowed the Chiefs to take their first lead of the game at 13-10. It’s shaping up to be a thrilling fourth-quarter finish.
