Longtime punter and current personality Pat McAfee thinks Denver Broncos placekicker Brandon McManus is going to break the record for the longest field goal in history this season.

McAfee asked McManus about the uniqueness of his “three-step” approach during an earlier edition of “The Pat McAfee Show,” later tweeting an NSFW message with respect to McManus' shot at history.

McManus will need to get a suitable opportunity first.

The veteran's career long is 57 yards. But the NFL record is 64 yards, which was set by former Broncos kicker Matt Prater in December of 2013.

However, McManus certainly has the leg power to nail a 65-yarder.

For starters, the ball tends to carry further in Denver. Secondly, McManus booted a whopping 73-yard field goal try during a practice in 2017.

Indeed, McManus actually threw a tantrum when head coach Vic Fangio would not allow him the opportunity to go for the record in December (via Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk):

Just before halftime on Sunday in Denver, Broncos kicker Brandon McManus walked onto the field prepared to attempt a 65-yard field goal. And then he walked off the field, at the orders of head coach Vic Fangio.

Fangio said after the game that he declined to let McManus try the field goal because he has seen extra-long attempts mess up kickers’ mechanics. McManus was angry about it, throwing his helmet and yelling at the sideline, and after the game he said he wanted a shot at the record.

Perhaps Fangio will give McManus that shot this year, though he may risk “ripping his leg apart,” as McAfee mused.

Regardless, the Broncos will be hoping McManus gets plenty more scoring chances after surrounding quarterback Drew Lock with explosive weapons at wide receiver during the 2020 NFL Draft.
