Adam Vinatieri: Still a horse

Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri had his third career game with five field goals, and the ex-Patriot has spread them out evenly. The first two were as members of the Patriots. Sunday’s performance was the most impressive of the three as he tied an NFL record with four kicks of at least 40 yards.
