A field goal kicker gets credit for the 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage and the 10 yards to the back of the endzone Why does a punter only get credit from the line of scrimmage?
I believe it's because there is a lot more variables in a punt versus a field goal.. A field goal is an attempt to score, so the real distance is used constantly for the kicking team to determine the chance of success. It's a verifyable known distance in a pass/fail test. A made or missed 43 yard f…ield goal is just that, 43 yards.. Punts, on the other hand, are attempts to advance the ball. Unless I'm mistaken, the end of the punt is measured from where it is downed, goes out of bounds, or caught so the kicker has the variable of bounce in some cases. He gets credit for a bounce in the direction of the end zone and loses yards for ones that come back toward him.. I would also guess that since longer punts are not always desired (due to touch backs) total distance is not nearly as important stat as hang time.. Finally, almost all field goals are seven yards behind the LOS, while punts vary in lin up distance (12-15 yards) (MORE)
"Good Old Half Foot" . Tom Dempsey, aka "Good Old Half Foot" whose career spanned 1969-1979 with several teams, was born without toes on his right foot. He currently holds the NFL record for longest field goal in history, along with Jason Elam of the Broncos, at 63 yards.
The first scoring play in the NFC Championship game played January 23, 1994 between the Cowboys and the 49ers was a five yard TD run by Emmitt Smith. The Cowboys went on to win the game 38-21.
The Vikings regular season record in 1998 was 15-1. Their only regular season loss was to the Buccaneers 27-24 in week 9.

You have to be in the NFC to play in the NFC championship game. The Steelers are in the AFC.
The 1998 NFC Championship Game was between the 15-1 Minnesota Vikings and the 14-2 Atlanta Falcons. Everybody in the world went into the game thinking the game would be a blow out with the Vikings advancing to Super Bowl XXXIII. The Atlanta Falcons scored early in the game with a touchdown pass t…o Jamal Anderson. However, Randall Cunningham hit Randy Moss in the inzone to tie it 7-7. However, the Vikings took over the rest of the half with two Gary Anderson field goals and a one-yard touchdown dive by Cunningham. This string of scores gave the Vikings 20 unanswered points. With under a minute left in the half, Cunningham stepped back to take another pass when out of no where, Chuck Smith stripped the ball and the Falcons recovered the Ball at the Vikings 14 yard line. With seconds left, Falcons quarterback Chris Chandler hit Terrance Mathis in the inzone to pull Atlanta within 20-14. The second half gave the vikings something to be afraid of. The Falcons scored first with Morten Andersen kicking a field goal narrowing Minnesota's lead by 3 points (20-17). Though the Vikings were losing their lead, they didn't lose their cool. Randall Cunningham stepped back and threw a diving catch to Matthew Hatchet in the inzone. The new lead of 10 points gave the Vikings a cushion, but the Falcons left them no time to get comfortable. Chris Chandler close to the Vikings inzone threw a pass literally from one side of the field to the other. The receiver was tackled at the 10 yard line. Unable to score a touchdown from their, Morten Andersen came through with another successful field goal, bringing the score to 27-20 Going into the near end of the 4th quarter the Vikings wanted to put the game out of reach. They drove to the 28 yard line and got set up for the field goal. Gary Anderson had had a literally "perfect" season not missing one extra point or field goal. As he kicked the ball, the ball curved wide to the left missing the goal posts. Everyone in the world was in shock after he missed his first field goal in two years. The Falcons took over with under a minute left in the half. Quarterback Chris Chandler then drove his team to one of the most dramatic finishes in post-season history. Chris Chandler drove to the the 15 yard line and hit Terrance Mathis yet again in the inzone. The pass tied the game 27-27. Going into overtime, the Atlanta Falcons stopped the Minnesota Vikings on two overtime possessions. Atlanta brought Morten Andersen in one more time to finish it off with a 38 yard field goal. As the world held their breath, Andersen took one final kick. The ball traveled what seemed like forever going straight through the goal posts. The Falcons won their first (and to this day only) NFC Championship. ESPN voted the game as the 3rd most exciting Post Season Game in NFL History. The Atlanta Falcons did the unthinkable and defeated the supposedly invincible Minnesota Vikings 30-27. (MORE)

How come nfl kickers can kick the ball for over 80 yards on a kick off but the longest field goal made is only 63 yards?
The kicker on field goals is rushed and only has 3 yards to run up and kick the ball. On the other hand the kicker on Kickoffs has whatever is comfortable yards for them.

Derby County 89 in 2007-08 season they also were relegated with the lowest number of points 11
Barry Sanders played in the 1991 NFC championship game against the Washington Redskins. He carried the ball 11 times for 44 yards and caught 4 passes for 15 yards.
In modern NFL era, the shortest field goal could only be 17 yards. The Goal Post is 10 yards deep in the end zone and the holder is 7 yards from the Line of scrimmage. So if a team kicked from the goal line, the kick would be from 17 yards out.
The Vikings were 15-1 in 1998. The only regular season loss they had was against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week 9 where they lost by 3 points. They also lost the NFC Championship game against the Atanta Falcons in one of the most heartbreaking games in Minnesota Vikings history since they were hea…vily favored. (MORE)
This question has to be the oddest I have ever seen. The punter punts, and the kicker is the place kicker. On occasion, if one is injured they may intercede
How much time was left in the game when the Minnesota Vikings missed a field goal against the Dolphins in 1972 and how long was the field goal attempt?
Pete Stoyanovich (kicker) missed a 46 yard field goal on the last play of the game.
The Minnesota Vikings have won 18 Divisional Championships (1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1980, 1989, 1992, 1994, 1998, 2000, 2008, 2009), and have appeared in the Super Bowl four times, without a win.

zero ---------- The Buffalo Bills are in the AFC, so they would never be in the NFC Championship Game.
Prior to the 2009 season when they will play the New Orleans Saints for the NFC Championship, that was the 2000 season when they played the New York Giants for the NFC Championship. The Giants won that game 41-0.
Here they are: . 12/30/1973, @ Dallas Cowboys (Won) . 12/29/1974, @ L.A. Rams (Won) . 12/26/1976, @ L.A. Rams (Won) (About.com calls this "NFL Championship," but this is a typo. It was actually the NFC Championship.) . 1/1/1978, v. Dallas Cowboys (Lost) . 1/17/1988, v. Washington Redskins (…Lost) . 1/17/1999, v. Atlanta Falcons (Lost in OT) . 1/14/2001, v. NY Giants (Lost) . 1/24/2010, @ New Orleans Saints (Lost) So, in summary, the Minnesota Vikings have been to the NFC Conference Championship eight times. Their record at said game is 3-5. Although the Vikings won one NFL Championship in 1969, that was before the merger of the NFL and AFL in 1970, which accounts for the reason why they have won three NFC Championships but lost four Super Bowls. (No, I'm not trying to rub it in. Just giving the facts. I actually like the Vikings.) Hope this helps!

Vikings have been to 7 Championship games in their conference; Won 3 lost 4, however, these games were after the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. Before then, the Vikings have won NFL titles before they had to play teams in the other conference.
The Minnesota Vikings played the New Orleans Saints in the NFCChampionship game on January 24th, 2010. New Orleans defeatedMinnesota 31-28.
Because although it was a tight match up for both teams the Saints were able to get the upper hand and place themselves in a position to win. It isn't because the Vikings didn't play well; the Saints just played a little better.
There were two by the Saints. One was by Jonathan Vilma and the other just before the end of regulation was by Tracy Porter.
the kicker for the steelers this year was Jeff read...if your not asking about 2010 you can look on nfl.com

Forty-Niners by 10. 01/21/2013: Well, I got the right team! ? Too bad I don't bet on sports. I picked the Ravens. Unfortunately, after the 1st half, I lost faith. I tried shooting Brady with my fingergun. I missed. Then, Flacco started playing well. The usually comatose Raven defense started m…aking plays. I'm not sure how 80% of Raven players pass the "random" drug tests, but hey, who am I to show up unannounced with a girl in a hot-nurse outfit and announce to the lockerroom that this is a RANDOM drug test, no one should leave the room. Anyone who tries to leave automatically becomes the first NFL player to come out as gay. I plan to bring the very best dancer/hooker money can buy. Suddenly, my faith in the Ravens was renewed. I felt born-again. I left behind the mess on the floor caused by effects of gravity on the bowl of spaghetti in my hand as I watched (fill-in name of Raven off. player) cross the goal-line. It was downhill from there. Ray Lewis had his usual hypo-manic episode. In this country, men can be bi-polar but women are Borderlines. Either way, a great many chemicals are crossing the blood/brain barrier as we speak. My XP might crash @ any moment. Mucho gusto. (MORE)
