Experts picking Colts to defeat the Falcons in Week 3

  • NFL-Colts-Adam-Vinatieri

Still, two games into the season, Vinatieri has cost his team one game and almost cost them another. In his last three games dating back to the Colts' Wild Card Playoff game a year ago, he's 1-of-4 on field goal kick and a horrendous 3-of-7 on extra point attempts, as pointed out by Field Yates of ESPN.

Adam Vinatieri says he just needed extra time to clear his mind Sunday night after missing two more extra points in the Indianapolis Colts' victory at Tennessee but he never contemplated retirement.

In a season-opening overtime loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, Vinatieri missed two field goals and an extra point in a game for the first time in his career.

Vinatieri, the NFL's all-time leading scorer with 2,605 points, left the locker room without talking to the media on Sunday.

"I think there's always mental and physical aspects of football", Vinatieri said.

"We had full belief to go down there and score, and we thought if we got into their territory, anywhere near, he would have a chance to put it up", Mariota said.

And while the Titans put together a handsome 10-play, 72-yard drive that ended with Quessenberry's touchdown catch, and then another short drive that ended with a Derrick Henry touchdown run, too many other drives never got going.

It's been more than 20 years since the Colts have had to worry about their kickers.

The Colts are slated to host the Falcons at 1 p.m. ET Sunday, with both teams entering Week 3 at 1-1.

According to Coach Frank Reich, who reiterated his support for Vinatieri on Monday by saying "Adam is our kicker", those decisions are made by General Manager Chris Ballard.

"I haven't been hitting the ball as good as I should be, " he said.

"Breaks my heart to see it because I know how hard (Vinatieri) works", Colts owner Jim Irsay said outside the locker room after the game. He missed a couple of weeks during the preseason with inflammation in his left knee. "I'm going to do everything in my power to get back and help this team down the stretch". Vinatieri said. "Everybody's shaking their head, so I guess that means yes". The Colts will be amped as this is their home opener after two tough road games to start the year, but Atlanta proved themselves in a tough test against Philadelphia last time out, and I think the Falcons get the job done on the road here in a tight one so I'll take the free point with Atlanta here.

"You'll hear from me [Monday]", he said.
