The worst part about tackling an article like this is every fan remembers a game where their kicker hit a 45 yard FG as time expired to give the team a 2 point win.  The problem is, there are so many of those FGs that compiling all of them would take a few researchers.

If your most memorable play didn't make the list please articles are not a static medium.  They change and grow with each new comment so please feel free to share your favorites.

As for this list...I'm looking for something special.  FGs that won playoff games or important regular season contests.  Long FGs are particularly appealing, but any kick that added that little extra spice to a great game will get my attention.

For the record, though, an overtime FG in a game the kicker could have won in regulation or earlier in OT (I'm talking to you, Joe Nedney) is not "clutch."  It may be redemption of an earlier choking, but it isn't likely to make this list.

One other FG that I'd love to include but that doesn't belong on the list is Bill Gramatica.  After kicking an irrelevant FG in the first quarter of a lost season (The Arizona Cardinals were 5-7 at the time), Gramatica celebrated like a drunk college student that kicked a 40 yard FG to win a car at halftime.  One torn anterior cruciate ligament the kick.
