5. AFC Divisional: Adam Vinatieri 23-yards - Raiders 13- 16 Patriots (OT)

This game will be forever remembered for the fumble that never was. But Adam Vinatieri's 23-yard field goal was the winning play in the game.

Normally a 23-yard field goal is nothing to write home about, but this one was vastly different to the normal ones.

The then Patriots kicker had to deal with the weather, which had become a big factor during the game. A successful kick from anywhere on the field looked difficult, but in and amongst the snow, Vinatieri sent the Pats through.
