Adam Vinatieri showed signs of mortality about two decades too late for Charles Woodson.
A week shy of 17 years after the ex-New England Patriots kicker broke the Raiders' hearts with a game-winning kick in the snow, the 46-year-old missed one on Saturday in the AFC Divisional Round. With his Indinapolis Colts down 24-7, Vinatieri missed from 23 yards out as time expired in the first half.
That's the same distance he converted from to give the Patriots a win over Woodson and the Raiders in the AFC Divisional Round on Jan. 19, 2002. The irony was not lost on the legendary cornerback.
