How long is a field goal kick?

It depends on where it is kicked from. It would be the yardage from where the ball is snapped plus the additional 10 yards of the endzone plus seven yards (the typical yardage the holder sets behind the center). Therefore, if the fieldgoal is kicked from the 40 yard line, it would be considered a 57 yard fieldgoal. That's only six yards short of the NFL record of 63 yards, held by Saints kicker Tom Dempsey.
