(Original Caption) New Orleans: Record Kick. Saints field goal expert Tom Dempsey watches one of his kicks split the uprights during first half action here Nov. 8th, as safety Joe Scarpati holds and Lions' safety Mike Weger watches. Dempsey kicked four field goals---the final and most exciting with two seconds left, a record 63 yards to give the Saints a come-from-behind-victory of 19-17. Dempsey was born without a right foot. He was fitted with an artificial foot in childhood, and it is with that wooden foot, encased in a football shoe, that he kicks his field goals and extra points.
