Vinatieri reached 709 field goal attempts in his career with his second kick of the day, reaching the historical mark of Morten Andersen, in the first place of all time.
Vinatieri reached 596 connected field goals in his career, an NFL record. Andersen retired with 565 field goals converted.
However, it has been a very complicated season for Vinatieri, who has scored five field goals and six extra points, including an extra point attempt this Sunday after the Colts placed up on the 12-10 score in the fourth quarter.
The Dolphins ended up winning the match 16-12.
