Adam Vinatieri made history Sunday. Again. With a second-quarter 25-yard field goal against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts kicker became the NFL's all-time leading scorer, surpassing Hall of Fame kicker Morten Andersen (2,544). Vinatieri entered the game with 2,540 points and tied Anderson's mark with a first-quarter extra point and field goal. The kicker recorded 10 points on the day and closed with 2,550 career points after Indy's 42-28 win.

The next closest active player is Seahawks kicker Sebastian Janikowski, who has 1,844 points after Sunday's games. It's been a history-making, record-breaking type of season for the legendary kicker. Just four weeks ago, Vinatieri broke the all-time mark for field goals, usurping Andersen again (565).
