Prater has converted more than 80 percent of his field goal attempts (90-of-112 / 80.4%) in five seasons with the Broncos while displaying clutch production and an expansive range.
For his career, he has made 28-of-29 (.966) fields goals attempted in the fourth quarter or overtime. He is coming off a 2011 campaign in which he converted four game-winning field goals in overtime (3) or as time expired in regulation (1).
He also owns the highest field goal percentage form 50+ yards in NFL history (min. 10 att.)—having made 12-of-16 (.750) career attempts in that range—and led the NFL in touchback percentage on kickoffs (47-of-67 / 70.1%) in 2011.
Originally signed by the Broncos in 2007 from Miami’s practice squad, Prater entered the NFL with Detroit in 2006 as a college free agent from the University of Central Florida.
