How does a 37-year old placekicker who was coming off his worst season five years ago regroup to get better with age and yesterday kick a NFL record-tying 63-yard field goal? With the help of the world's #1 selling fitness program, P90X. Akers began using the program after having one of his worst seasons five years ago, going two-for-tenbeyond the 40-yard line. A story on The Straight Dope gives more details.
Five years later, when most athletes physical skills and strength are waning, Akers kicks the longest FG in NFL history and obviously the longest in his career. A pretty amazing feat considering the Baltimore Ravens had a FG kicker named Matt Stover who was deadly inside of 40-yards but virtually worthless beyond it at the tail end of his great career.
