#Fact
1 On 19 January 2002, in a playoff game against the Oakland Raiders on a snow-covered field, Vinatieri kicked a 45-yard field goal that tied the game at 13-13. The Patriots won the game 16-13 (on another Vinatieri field goal) and went on to win their first Super Bowl. "Kick-Starting a Dynasty" was ranked #7 in TV Guide's list of the "25 Most Awesome Sports Moments (of the last 15 years)". [17 July 2005 issue]
2 Descendant of Felix Vinatieri, who fought alongside General George Custer at the Battle of Little Big Horn.
3 Relative of motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel.
4 He had never missed a field goal inside a dome stadium in his career until the Patriots played the Houston Texans in November 2003 inside Reliant Stadium. Vinitiari missed two FG tries, but kicked the game-winning FG near the end of overtime, helping the Patriots win 23-20. Reliant Stadium would prove a personal house of horrors for Vinitiari again in Superbowl XXXVIII against the Carolina Panthers. Vinitiari missed a FG try and a second try was blocked by Panthers player Shane Burton, both in the game's first quarter, but as in Superbowl XXXVI he kicked the winning FG at the end of regulation.
