Harrison Butker's 70-yard field goal during warmups in Mexico City.

  • "Monday Night Football's game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers is being held in Mexico City.
  • The thin air in the elevation of Mexico City could lead to some long kicks as demonstrated by Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker who made a field goal from 70 yards during warmups.
  • The kick would be six yards farther than the NFL record of 64 yards.
  • In NFL history, there have been seven field goals of at least 63 yards. Three of those were made in similar air conditions in Denver, Colorado, including Matt Prater's record 64-yard field goal in 2013.
