NFL Week One, 2013: Assorted Kicking Tidbits & Milestones

Chicago Bears kicker Robbie Gould hit 58 yard field goal in this week's game against Cincinnati. That breaks his previous club record for longest field goal, which he set in a road game at Denver in 2011. It betters the 20-year old record for longest kick at Soldier Field, which had been owned by Kevin Butler with a 55 yarder.

New York Jets kicker Nick Folk was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

New York Jets punter Robert Malone hit a 84 yard punt against Tampa Bay. It places him in the top twenty for longest punts ever in the NFL, and is the second longest for the team.
