Colts rookie kicker Rodrigo Blankenship has continued to help fans in Indy forget about Adam Vinatieri’s bad final season.
The importance of flaunting a sound special teams unit is often overlooked in today’s NFL, when scoring touchdowns take precedent and going for it on fourth down is growing in popularity. Don’t tell that to the Indianapolis Colts, however, because punter Rigoberto Sanchez and kicker Rodrigo Blankenship form one of the best tandems in the league.
