fair catch field goals (answered)

Postby redragon19 » Sat Dec 17, 2005 2:23 pm

A little known rule in the NFL allows a field goal to be kicked on a fair catch, with the opposing team defending as if it were a kick off.

Who was the last team to SUCCESSFULLY convert a fair catch field goal, when and against whom?

Just thought of another possible correct answer:

1974, Mean Machine vs the Guards
(didn't see the remake so I don't know if it was done again in 2005)
