San Francisco 49ers kicker Jake Moody made NFL history by scoring the first points of Super Bowl LVIII.

Moody, a rookie, booted the longest field goal in Super Bowl history in the second quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday with a 55-yard field goal to push the Niners ahead 3-0. Former Buffalo Bills kicker Steve Christie previously held the record with a 54-yarder against the Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl XXVIII.

This was a nice start for Moody after only making three field goals in his five postseason attempts this year. Moody made 21 of his 25 attempts during the regular season.
