Colts Kicker Adam Vinatieri Named AFC Special Teams Player Of The Week For Week Ten

New, comments

Well, well, well. Will you look at that. The kicker who was, supposedly, 'done' has gone and proven the naysayers wrong. From the Indianapolis Star's Twitter:

Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri named AFC special teams player of the week. He was 3-3 and hit a 47-yarder last Sunday.

Vinatieri is quietly having a Pro Bowl season. He is fifth in the league in field goal percentage (90%) going 17-19 on the season thus far, including 6-5 on FGs between 40-49 yards. He's also 27-27 on extra points.

The only kicker in the AFC having a better season than Adam is Rob Bironas of the Titans.
