estone Sunday by becoming the NFL's career field goal leader.He would have preferred doing it by adding to his league record for victories.The 23-year veteran made the record-breaking 566th field goal with 2 seconds left in the first half and No. 567 on a 44-yarder in overtime to give the Indianapolis Colts a 34-31 lead before watching Ka'imi Fairbairn make two more field goals to give Houston a 37-34 victory."It's more fun when you get a win that's for sure. But it's a good record White Kenny Moore Jersey , a fun record, just would have been nice on a win," he said."I think I'll probably think about it more when I'm done and gone. I was thinking about it when guys were congratulating me during the game, and it just kind of hit me just like that that's more than anybody's ever done."The previous record of 565 belonged to Hall of Famer Morten Andersen, who played high school football at Indianapolis Ben Davis.Vinatieri tied the record by making three kicks in last week's wet loss at Philadelphia before breaking the record on a bright, sunny day on his home turf.Had he not gotten the chance Sunday, Vinatieri's next chance would have come Thursday at New England, where he started his career in 1996.But the 45-year-old kicker, the oldest player in the league, kept that story line off the books by making the medium-range field goal to get the Colts within 21-10. Afterward, Vinatieri's teammates wanted to celebrate more than the new career leader did."I heard the crowd a little more than usual. I think every one of my teammates came up to me, we were down at the time and was kind of like, 'We're down let's go win this game,'" he said. "Wish I had one more opportunity, I guess."Vinatieri needs to get used to these sorts of days given the charts he's still climbing.The South Dakota State alum played in his 341st game, breaking a tie with Hall of Famer George Blanda to move into fourth. If he plays in all 12 remaining games http://www.authenticsindianapoliscolts.com/cheap-jack-doyle-jersey , he will pass Jeff Feagles (343) and tie Gary Anderson (353) for second all time.His next field goal attempt will surpass Anderson (672) for No. 2 all time.And Vinatieri has moved within 26 points of breaking Andersen's career scoring record of 2,544. Vinatieri has said he also hopes to break that record at Lucas Oil Stadium. He is the only player on Indy's roster who played on opening night of the stadium in 2008.What Vinatieri, dubbed the best clutch kicker in league history, does best is win.He's participated in a league-record 226 regular-season victories, owns four Super Bowl rings, has played on six AFC championship teams and is the NFL's career scoring leader in postseason games (234 points).His most memorable kicks do not count in the official league records.He made the decisive field goals in the final minutes to give New England two Super Bowl wins and two field goals in the infamous "Snow Bowl", or "Tuck Rule Game", to help the Patriots beat Oakland in overtime and start the run to the franchise's first Super Bowl crown.But he would have liked to win this one."It's weird, you know, you come off a loss and it doesn't feel quite the same way," Vinatieri said. "I'm sure I'll look back at in years to come and it will be pretty special." The Colts made some big moves today in preparation for their Thursday night matchup against the New England Patriots. First, running back Robert Turbin has been elevated to the active roster after being suspended for the first 4 games of the season. Turbin provides a tough downhill runner that the Colts lack, and is the kind of reliable runner they desperately need tonight. Having missed time, he will likely have limited snaps, but works well situationally as a short yardage back and will definitely make an impact on the game. Additionally, they have elevated CB Lenzy Pipkins and LB Skai Moore to the active roster. They’ll provide much needed depth at two positions where injuries have left the Colts pretty thin. The Colts signed Skai Moore as an undrafted free agent and saw him perform well in his role while they were without Anthony Walker Jr. during the preseason. Walker has come back and played really well Youth Ryan Kelly Jersey , but it is good to see Moore make his way back to the active roster to bolster the linebacker room. Hopefully that move isn’t related to Darius Leonard’s availability tonight.Lenzy Pipkins was acquired in the Colts’ trade with the Packers in which they sent Antonio Morrison to Green Bay. He has been back and forth from the practice squad to the active roster, but tonight could see a chance to make an impact with the absence of Quincy Wilson, Kenny Moore, and with Nate Hairston still listed as questionable. The Colts will need all the help they can get in tonight’s game, and hopefully these guys can take advantage of this opportunity to show what they can do.Correspondingly the Colts have waived two defensive ends, Tarell Basham and Al-Quadin Muhammad. Basham, the Colts’ 3rd round pick from 2017 has been unable to crack the roster, never really showing the flashes that prompted the Colts selecting him. It was initially thought that the scheme defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus was going to implement would favor Basham’s strengths, but he has been unable to make any impact and has been surpassed by rookies and free agents on a line that has been largely effective without him. In his time with the Colts Basham has played in 16 games, has 5 total tackles, 2 sacks, and a forced fumble. Al-Quadin Muhammad was brought in off waivers back in September after the Saints, who drafted him in the 6th round of 2017’s draft, released him. In his time with the Colts this season he played in 4 games and recorded 6 total tackles.Based on the way the Colts have bounced players back and forth between the active roster and practice squad, this is by no means an indication that either player will be out of work for long. Time will tell if they get a second chance.
