Kickers. They can be the ultimate hero in a game. Or they can be the biggest goat.

Called “Mr. Clutch” by many in the media for his game-tying or game-winning kicks in every type of weather, Vinatieri is perhaps the greatest kicker to ever play the game. He owns four Super Bowl rings–three with the New England Patriots in 2001, 2003, and 2004–and one with the Indianapolis Colts in 2006.
