Prater is clutch. He's as good as there's ever been with the game on the line.

A seventh-year kicker who ranks first in franchise history in field goal accuracy having converted 134-of-163 (.822) attempts in his first six seasons with the Broncos.
Converted 45-of-48 (.938) career field goals in the fourth quarter in addition to connecting on all four of his attempts in overtime.
Set an NFL record with a 64-yard filed goal vs. Tennessee (12/8/13).
Owns the best field goal percentage from 50+ yards (.769/ 20-of-26) in league history among players who started their career after 1970 (min. 20 att.)
Owns four AFC Special Teams Player of the Week awards (2008, 09, 11, 12) and two AFC Special Teams Player of the Month honors (Sept. 09, Dec./Jan. 11) for his NFL career.
Set a franchise kicker record with 133 points scored (26/32 FGs, 55/55 PATs) and led the NFL with 65 touchbacks on kickoffs in 2012.
Delivered four game-winning field goals on the last play of the game in 2011 (3 in OT, 1 on last play of regulation) to tie for the second most in a single season in NFL history.
Joined Mike Vanderjagt as the only two players in NFL history to kick a 50+yard field goal with less than a minute remaining in regulation to force overtime in addition to converting a 50+yard game-winning field goal in overtime with his performance vs. Chicago (12/11/11).
Made 16-of-18 field goals in 2010 to represent the second-highest single-season field goal percentage (.889) in team history (min. 10 att.).
Converted 18 consecutive field goal attempts, spanning the last eight games in 2009 and the first six contests in 2010, to represent the third-longest such streak in Broncos history.
Tied the Broncos single-season record and ranked fourth in the NFL with five 50-yard field goals, including a career-long 56-yarder as well as two 50-yarders in one game, in 2008.
