    Indy Star article..............ADAM

    Back home again

    Adam Vinatieri is in his 18th NFL season and has been on both sides of the Colts-Patriots rivalry. He spent his first 10 seasons with New England before signing with the Colts as a free agent in 2006.

    Saturday marks Vinatieri's 25th game in the series. The only one he missed was in 2009 when he was out with a knee injury.

    "It really never gets old," Vinatieri said. "Two great organizations, great coaches, great players obviously.

    "It's one of those (great rivalries). It's the Sox-Yankees, if you will. That kind of thing where I think both teams respect each other and know what comes to the table. It's going to be a fun game."

    Vinatieri is coming off one of his best seasons. He set a personal best with 35 made field goals (35-of-40, 87.5 percent) and his 139 points were the second-highest total of his career.

    Vinatieri is New England's all-time scoring leader with 1,158 points and ranks No. 2 with the Colts (848), and his 2,006 career points are No. 5 in NFL history.

    In the postseason, Vinatieri has no peers. He holds league records for points (205), field goals made (49) and consecutive games with at least one point (26). He'll also be appearing in his 27th game, tying Dallas' D.D. Lewis for the second-most in NFL history. Jerry Rice holds the record (29), which Vinatieri would tie if the Colts reach the Super Bowl.

    "He's a great player and a Hall of Fame kicker if there ever was one," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said.

    Great article, I'm sure he'll break Jerry's record just not this year, I'm sure brady will end up with more post season games than both them as well.

    He's a kicker for Ch***'s sake.  Consecutive games is a record for guys who have contact during games not kickers.  I think the game would be improved without them.....

    Adam please, comparing the Pats-Colts rivalry to the Sox-Yanks rivalry is laughable.

    You do have a point. Of course he could suffer a horrible injury tripping over the holder

    Adam should have taken BB's offer. He can look to Indy for work after his career ends. Maybe he can sell some tractors or mules.

    Yeah Babe because he is sooo poor. He wanted to move indoors to increase his longevity and stats.

    But hey that kind of stuff makes too much sense for some people because they drip with hate.

    Well, Adam kicking field goals won't help the Colts the saturday.  I see the Pats running the ball down the Colts throat for TD's.

    This trash went to our biggest conference rival and got them to the Super Bowl (over us) the year he left.  Hopefully Blount runs him over on a kick return.
