9. Adam Vinatieri (K-NE)
A kicker in the Top 10 Super Bowl players of all time? Absolutely.
New England Patriots kicker Adam Vinatieri was every bit as gold as any player on the Pats’ two first championships.
Yes, while it’s always Tom Brady who receives the admiration, it was actually Brady who only drove his offense into field goal range. Vinatieri had the tough part of winning the game not once, but twice with long distance field goals.
Not only did he nail the game-winners in Super Bowls XXXVI and XXXVIII, he won a third in New England and a fourth in Indianapolis with the Colts.
Vinatieri only trails Jerry Rice with a total of 34 career Super Bowl points.
