    Ryan Longwell didn't realize until Monday that he had kicked his 300th NFL field goal in Sunday's 27-13 victory against the Detroit Lions, tying him for 19th on the all-time list. So the day after the game, Longwell was looking for Vikings equipment manager Dennis Ryan, hoping he would have the ball available. "[To play] this long and to have a chance to get numbers like that, it is very humbling, and before you know it, they keep adding up," said Longwell, who is tied with Mark Moseley and closing in on Jim Turner. "You pass some of the names on these lists, and it is pretty humbling to be in the same breath as some of these guys." Longwell said that Ford Field, which opened in 2002, is one of the best stadiums in the NFL.
