What was the longest punt in a NFL game?

On September 21, 1969 the New York Jets were taking on the Denver Broncos and the Jets were pinned on their own one-yard line.

The Jets sent in their secret weapon, Steve O’Neal, a rookie from Texas A&M, who took the punt from his own end line.

With a bit of help from the wind the ball flew 70 yards before taking a few good bounces, eventually being fielded by by the Lions Bill Thompson inside the one-yard-line.

Total length of of the longest punt in NFL history; 98 yards, breaking the 94 yard record that stood since November 16, 1931.
