"I enjoy playing on teams that win games," Vinatieri said. "It's fun playing in January, February. It's fun having a chance to play for a championship, and that definitely weighs in on all decisions."
"We seem to be playing well enough to stay in games," kicker Adam Vinatieri said. "We've played some good teams very tough, but we haven't been able to win. This may sound old, but this is the best 3-12 team that I've ever known of. When you look at a team that has a 3-12 record, you think these guys are terrible. But we aren't, and any team that plays us knows that."
