San Diego Chargers cornerback Antonio Cromartie returned Ryan Longwell's missed 58-yard field goal attempt 109 yards and 34in. for a touchdown for the longest play in NFL history. It occurred as the first half ended Sunday November 4th, 2007, in a game against the Minnesota Vikings.

In time, the longest play is most likely a play known as the River City Relay, which occurred in a December, 2003 game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and New Orleans Saints. It lasted 25 seconds, well past the timed end of the fourth quarter. Trailing 20-13, the Saints scored a 75-yard touchdown after a pass and three laterals, then missed the extra point that would have sent the game into overtime. (Even with a win, the Saints would have missed the playoffs at 9-7.)
