3. Super Bowl XXXVI: Adam Vinatieri 48-yards - Patriots 20 -17 Rams
As time expired in this Super Bowl match-up, Adam Vinatieri stepped up with a clutch kick out of the top draw. The pressure was well and truly on for the Pats kicker, with a 48 yarded definitely not counting as an easy effort.
This game-winning kick is not simply significant within the Super Bowl itself, it also started the New England Patriots dynasty which followed the winning of this particular Super Bowl.
