ADAM VINATIERI

Even though Vinatieri’s “defection” to the Indianapolis Colts wasn’t exactly well-received in New England, it was easy to forgive the former Patriots kicker. After all, he kicked the Pats to three Super Bowl titles before earning one with Peyton Manning and the Colts.

“Vinatieri was a clutch performing kicker that kick-started the dynasty for the New England Patriots in 2002. He was highly regarded in 2004 after he nailed a 41-yard field goal to secure another Super Bowl title against the Panthers. He definitely has the ‘clutch gene’.” - Brian Parker

No field goal attempt was too imposing for Vinatieri in Madden NFL 2004, which came near the height of his career and between wins in Super Bowl XXXVIII and Super Bowl XXXIX.

“Adam Vinatieri was as close to perfect a kicker as Madden has ever seen. If you had to line up a kick in Madden 2004, Vinatieri was the guy you wanted kicking it.” - Shaun Mason
