I think it helped him in the same way sprinters that use high tech prosthetics get a boost from their equipment’s superior conservation of energy.

There’s a reason Dempsy’s record stood for so many seasons.

It's not the only reason. Back then, a missed field goal meant the other team took over on its twenty yard line. Soon after, it was moved to the original line of scrimmage. Attempting long kicks has much more severe consequences now.

And it's been the spot of the kick since 1994.
