Former NFL star Charles Woodson’s hilarious reaction to Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri’s field-goal miss vs. Chiefs
It has been 17 years since the infamous “Tuck Rule Game” between the Oakland Raiders and the New England Patriots in the Divisional Round of the 2002 NFL Playoffs, when then-Patriots kicker Adam Vinatieri nailed a 45-yard field goal to send the game into overtime and then ended things with a 23-yarder in the extra session.
Vinatieri’s clutchness on those two kicks instantly vaulted him into legendary status, as both boots came during a snowstorm. As a matter of fact, Vinatieri’s game-tying field goal is widely considered one of the most difficult kicks in NFL history.
Now, the 46-year-old is with the Indianapolis Colts, and on Saturday night in the Colts’ Divisional Round matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, Vinatieri came on to try and make a 23-yard field goal before the end of the half.
The future Hall-of-Famer ended up shanking the kick, as it hit the upright.
Following the miss, former Raiders cornerback Charles Woodson had the best reaction possible:
Now he misses in the snow

And really, this time, there wasn’t even any snow. It snowed prior to the game, but Vinatieri basically had clear weather for his chip shot. He just flat out missed it.
In his 24-year NFL career, Vinatieri had only missed six field goals between 20-29 yards. This season, he went 8-for-8 and had made 23 of his 27 field-goal attempts overall.
He spent the first 10 years of his career in New England before heading to the Colts in 2006, where he proceeded to win a Super Bowl in his first season.
Vinatieri has four rings overall.
