Brett Maher

Brett Maher kicks a 63 yard field goal. He became the first kicker in NFL history to kick three FGs of at least 60 yards.

Former Husker Brett Maher made NFL history in the Cowboys’ 37-10 win over the Eagles Sunday night.

With his 63-yard field goal — the final play before halftime — Maher became the first in NFL history to kick three field goals of at least 60 yards.

Last week, Maher had hit a 62-yarder against the Jets and before that, another one in 2018 against the Eagles.

His kick this week breaks a tie with former UNO standout Greg Zuerlein and Sebastian Janikowski for multiple field goals over 60 yards.

Maher’s kick Sunday was a yard short of tying the longest NFL field goal, 64 yards by Matt Prater.
