Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri converted a pair of field goals in Sunday's 27-0 win over the Cincinnati Bengals to overtake John Kasay for sole possession of sixth place on the all-time field-goals-made list.
Sitting at 460 career field goals entering the game, Vinatieri tied Kasay at 461 upon kicking an easy 23-yarder to open the scoring late in the first quarter. He then kicked three extra points before getting a chance from 50 yards out in the fourth quarter with the Colts nursing a 24-0 lead inside of the two-minute warning.
Vinatieri converted the long but otherwise fairly meaningless field goal, passing Kasay on the all-time list while recording his first kick from 50-plus yards this season. Having now hit all 14 of his field-goal attempts this year, the 41-year-old veteran owns an 83.4 percent conversion rate for his career, good for 15th place on the all-time accuracy list.
Best remembered for his game-winning field goals in Super Bowls XXXVI and XXXVIII for the New England Patriots, Vinatieri recorded 263 regular-season field goals in a Patriots uniform from 1996 to 2005, adding another 199 since he joined the Colts before the 2006 season.
