Vikings kicker Blair Walsh has never had an issue with distance. The 3rd year pro out of Georgia holds the NFL record for most 50-plus yard field goals in a season, and he’s tied for the Vikings franchise record for longest field field goal (56 yards).

So while it’s not entirely surprising, it was certainly impressive that Walsh was able to connect on a 70-yarder in warm ups before Minnesota’s preseason game against the Cardinals yesterday. Check out the video below:

 

During the actual game, Walsh connected from 21 and 34 yards out. He missed from 51. Bummer.

The Vikes open the regular season on September 7th against the Rams. We’ll have to see if Walsh gets an opportunity to best Matt Prater’s 64-yard record breaker from last year.
