This kick today is essentially at least a high percentage (>85%) conversion. He is expected to make it, not be gloated over for it.
Advanced NFL Stats show the increasing distance conversion percentages through 2011. No reason to believe this stat has not continued its upward trend. The article underscores the importance of having a good kicker.
