Denver is a place that every kicker dreams of playing because the altitude, the ball travels farther. Justin Tucker was talking on NFL Network and believes he can hit an 80 plus yarder if he was in Denver on a good day.
“We think about these things really specifically,” Tucker said. “If conditions are prime, like last season we opened up in Denver, the weather was warm, the field was nice, and you’re up at altitude so the ball just carries. In pregame I think I hit the crossbar from 85, so if the situation is just prime, then maybe 84 and a half yards.”
That is insane, I would be impressed if he attempted to hit more than a 70 yarder.
