DETROIT (AP) -- Jason Hanson kicked a 53-yard field goal against the Tennessee Titans and tied Morten Andersen's NFL record for the most kicks from 50-plus yards.
Hanson made his 40th field goal from 50-plus yards Thursday on the 74th attempt of his career, which started with the Lions in 1992.
Andersen was 40-of-84 from 1982-2007. The Michigan State product played for New Orleans, Atlanta, Kansas City, Minnesota and the New York Giants.
Hanson's record-tying kick early in the first quarter pulled the winless Lions within four points of the Titans. Then, Chris Johnson ran untouched for 58 yards to score his second touchdown of the game. Tennessee went on to win 47-10.
