By the time he retires, Adam Vinatieri is probably going to hold almost every kicking record that the NFL's ever had.
The Colts kicker is on track to do that after breaking an NFL record on Sunday that had stood for over 10 years. Vinatieri hit his first two field goals against the Titans, meaning he has now made 43 straight field goals, which is a new NFL record.
The previous record had belonged to hit former Colts kicker Mike Vanderjagt, who hit 42 straight field goals over three seasons (2002-2004), although you might know him best as the liquored up kicker who was hated by Peyton Manning.
Anyway, to give you an idea of how difficult it is for Vinatieri to break this record, consider this: Only three players in NFL history have ever even made 40 straight field goals: Vinatieri (43), Vanderjagt (42) and Gary Anderson (40), who did it between the 1997 and 1998 seasons.
Anderson is the NFL's second all-time leading scorer and it's not crazy to think that Vinatieri will soon overtake him for the second spot on the all-time list. Including the eight points Vinatieri has against Tennessee, the Colts kicker 2,323 points for his career, which is just 101 behind Anderson (2,434).
At 43, Vinatieri doesn't look like he's going to retire anytime soon, which means he should pass Anderson at some point next season.
Vinatieri's record-breaker on Sunday came on a 33-yard field goal in the third quarter that gave the Colts a 20-13 lead.
