MATT PRATER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ten biggest winners and losers from 2017 Pro Bowl

The 2017 Pro Bowl provided a fair amount of entertainment to those who watched, but there was also some mediocre play on display.A defensive-minded affair, the AFC All-Stars defeated the NFC All-Stars by a score of 20-13. There were some huge plays on both sides of the ball, and the game wasn’t decided until the waning moments, which is something we don’t necessarily associate...

WATCH: Matt Prater shows off leg, kicks 78-yard field goal

Just Tucker’s 76-yard field goal at the Pro Bowl was impressive, but Matt Prater managed to show him up with a booming kick of his own. Prater, who was one of the top three kickers in the league this year, showed off his powerful leg and drained a 78-yard kick, which seems unfathomable. No word on whether or not the NFL has decided to drug test Prater after that kick, given how...

WATCH: Matt Prater one-ups Justin Tucker with 76-yard FG

Based on the way some of the NFL’s top kickers are performing in practice, it’s only a matter of time before a 70-plus-yard field goal is made during a game. Baltimore Ravens kicker shocked us when he posted a 75-yard make during a practice session this week, but it didn’t take long for one of his peers to one-up him.Matt Prater of the Detroit Lions posted a short video on...

ESPN uses worst camera angle ever for Detroit field goal attempt

There have been occasions when a network production crew will show a camera angle that doesn’t provide the best view of a play. In the case of a Detroit Lions field goal attempt by Matt Prater against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football, it appeared that ESPN were attempting to show an angle either from the far end of AT&T Stadium or from the sun.

Why were the Denver Broncos a hater to Matt Prater?

The most accurate kicker in Denver Broncos history is now a Detroit Lion. That sounds kind of weird right? The release of Matt Prater still has me scratching my head. Why in the world would the Broncos cut one of the best kickers in the league? He was a pro-bowler last season, converting 25 of 26 kicks, 14 of 15 from beyond 40 yards, and nailed a 64-yard bomb in the cold that set...

Prater has been with the team for eight seasons and led the NFL in both field goal percentage as well as extra-points made last year. It’s a surprising move for a team that...

Denver Broncos: Was Matt Prater’s suspension too much?

Last season, Matt Prater established himself as the best kicker in the league. He missed only one field goal, would kick them through easily from more than 50 yards away, and even broke a 43 year old record when he kicked in a 64 yard field goal. But this year, he will have to wait to help out the Broncos, since he will be suspended for the first four games of the season. Prater...
