A lot of stuff happened in the waning moments of the first half of the Titans-Broncos game, but only one of them was historic.

Broncos kicker Matt Prater broke an NFL record with a 64-yard field goal (which would have been good from at least 65 1/2) to break the previous record of 63.

Making that kind of kick anywhere is impressive, and any advantage he gained from elevation is probably negated by the frigid conditions in Denver, which can turn the K-ball into a brick.

That cut the Titans lead to 21-20 at halftime, of a game more hard-hitting than the score would indicate.

In fact, Wes Welker left the field shortly before Prater’s record kick, shaken up by a hit from Titans safety George Wilson.

It’s been a physical game, and the Titans have run for three touchdowns.
