Adam Vinatieri Honored

Trever RobyContributor INovember 5, 2008

As we all know, Adam Vinatieri is one of the best kickers in the NFL. We have not seen much of Vinatieri's abilities as we hit half of this season. Last Sunday, however, was different.

The Colts were entering the famous Colts vs. Patriots game, with a loosing record—first time in a long time it's been like this. This year, things were different for both teams for this rivalry game. Tom Brady now won't step on the field again this year, and the Colts were not doing as well as we all know they could do.

With 8:05 left in the game, Adam Vinatieri set up for the 52-yard field goal that would give the Colts the upper hand on this game. It was good! Colts later sealed the win when Patriots' Randy Moss fumbled on an attempted lateral in the final seconds of the game.

Vinatieri was awarded the Horse Trailer Player of the Game, and was named the AFC’s Defensive Player of the Week.

Vinatieri has nine field goals of 50 yards or more in his 13-year career. However, he hasn't kicked one over 50 yards since the 2002 season.
