Titans K Bironas sets NFL mark with 51-yard FG

Titans kicker Rob Bironas has set an NFL record with a 51-yard

field goal, giving him a field goal of 40 yards or longer in nine

straight games.

Bironas had been tied with Morten Andersen (1990-91) and Jeff

Wilkins (2005-06) with a field goal of 40 yards or longer in eight

straight games, the longest mark since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger.

The Titans kicker hit a 51-yarder at 7:05 of the first quarter

Saturday against Jacksonville. He is the first kicker whose streak

is in a single season.

Bironas is the NFL’s all-time leader in field goal accuracy 40

yards or longer with a minimum of 100 attempts at 78 percent.
