The Vikings and Cardinals played a wild first half of football, and it ended with a tremendous boot by Matt Prater.

Prater, the kicker in his first year in Arizona, hit a 62-yard field goal as the second quarter expired.

It was the latest in a long line of long field goals by Prater, who owns the NFL record for the longest field goal ever, a 64-yarder he kicked in Denver in 2013. Prater is also the NFL’s career record holder in 50-yard field goals.

Kirk Cousins threw three first-half touchdown passes for the Vikings, while Kyler Murray threw two for the Cardinals and also ran for a touchdown. Each team has a field goal, but the Vikings missed an extra point and the Cardinals lead 24-23.

  1. Matt Prater was excellent acquisition by Steve Keim in the off season… The Cardinals had their own kicking heartbreaks last year and can empathize and feel the pain of the Viking fans who cannot believe they lost that game. When you finally find your consistent productive kicker, who does not choke under pressure, a team can go far!
