Whether it was one of Adam Vinatieri's many game-winning or game-tying field goals or the famous snowplow kick, there are plenty of 3-pointers etched into the hearts of Pats fans.
But one somewhat recent field goal sticks out for how it was kicked, not necessarily when.
This 43-year-old backup player drop-kicked an extra point in the Patriots’ 28-26 win over the Dolphins on Jan. 1, 2006.
It was the first successful drop kick since Dec. 21, 1941, when Ray “Scooter” McLean hit one to help the Chicago Bears beat the New York Giants 37-9 in the NFL championship game.
Who was the player that hit this field goal?
