Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker is heading into the regular season with very lofty goals. 

Butker, who hit a 66-yard field goal during warm-ups over the weekend, wants to break a significant record this fall. 

During a recent media session, Butker revealed that he wants to break Justin Tucker's record for the longest field goal in NFL history. In order to do that, he'd need to drill a field goal from 67 yards out. 

Butker isn't just thinking about making a 67-yard field goal, he wants to attempt a 70-yarder at some point this year. 

“I mean, the conditions have to be right," Butker said. "It’s got to be warm, probably some wind at your back. ... But I feel like I have the distance for it, definitely.”

There are plenty of fans who would like to see Butker attempt a 70-yard field goal. 

On the flip side, there are people who believe he has no chance of making a field goal from 70 yards out.

Since 2017, Butker has made 20-of-28 field goal attempts from at least 50 yards. 

Do you think Butker should get the chance to kick a 70-yard field goal this season?
