49ers K Jake Moody sets record for longest Super Bowl field goal

San Francisco 49ers rookie kicker Jake Moody set a Super Bowl record with a 55-yard field goal for the first points of Super Bowl LVIII against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in Las Vegas.

The kick 12 seconds into the second quarter easily carried through the uprights to break the old mark held by Steve Christie of the Buffalo Bills. Christie made a 54-yarder against the Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl XXVIII on Jan. 30, 1994.

Moody, out of Michigan, kicked a 57-yard field goal during the regular season. The 49ers selected him in the third round of the draft.
