New England Patriots kicker Nick Folk made NFL history during Sunday's game vs. the Baltimore Ravens.

During the second quarter, Folk drilled a 35-yard field goal to give the Patriots their first score of the game. While New England would have preferred a touchdown to tie it up at 7-7, it can take solace in Folk being one of the most consistent kickers in the league.

The field goal marked Folk's 57th consecutive made kick under 50 yards, a new NFL record.

Since joining the Patriots in 2019, Folk is 69-for-73 on field goals under 50 yards and 8-for-13 on 50-plus-yard attempts. He has converted 87 of his 95 extra points.
