Vinatieri converted 27 of 31 field goal attempts and all 44 of his extra points during the 2016 season. Vinatieri, playing at 43 years old the majority of the season, tied for the sixth-best field goal percentage in the league at 87.1 percent. He was one of the few kickers to not miss an extra point throughout the year, too, and was a fantastic 7-for-9 on kicks longer than 50 yards. Set to return for the Colts in 2017, Vinatieri is yet to show any signs of slowing down his Hall of Fame career.
Vinatieri ended a streak of 44 consecutive field goals made with a 42-yard missed attempt in Sunday's win over Tennessee. He did make a 49-yard attempt and all three extra point attempts. It's certainly hard to complain about any Vinatieri miss and the 49-yard conversion late in the game was another sign there's no cause for alarm.
Vinatieri extended his streak of consecutive made field goals to a NFL record 43 in Sunday's win over Tennessee. He made both field goal and all four extra point attempts. Vinatieri converted on a 33-yard field goal in the third quarter to pass Mike Vanderjagt for the NFL record. Even at age 43, Vinatieri shows no signs of slowing down.
Vinatieri made all three field goal attempts in Sunday's loss to Houston, along with both extra-point attempts. He's made 41 consecutive field goals and is just one away from the NFL record. Alas, Vinatieri didn't get a chance to tie the record with a game-winning attempt as the Colts couldn't get into field goal range in a tied game late in the fourth quarter or overtime. Vinatieri is having an amazing late-career peak at age 43.
Vinatieri made all five field goal attempts and both extra point attempts in Sunday's win over Chicago. His current streak of 38 made field goals is the third longest in NFL history, according to ESPN. Vinatieri has made all 13 field goals this season, including ten of forty yards or more. He shows no signs of slowing down at age 43.
