The temperature was 14 degrees when Prater kicked his record setter to close the first half and pull Denver within 21-20.

Manning opened the third quarter by leading the Broncos on a pair of touchdown drives, and the Broncos (11-2) easily wrapped up a playoff spot.

Denver’s quarterback set a franchise record with 39 completions and finished with 397 yards.

Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 172 yards for the Titans (5-8), who went 73 yards in five plays to score on the game’s first drive and led 21-10 in the middle of the second quarter.

The previous NFL long kick record, since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970, was 63 yards. Four kickers had accomplished the feat: Tom Dempsey (1970), Jason Elam (1998), Sebastian Janikowski (2011), and David Akers (2012). Now, Prater stands alone.
