Adam Vinatieri broke the hearts of the St. Louis Rams and made the New England Patriots World Champions when he booted a 48-yard field goal with no time left to give the Patriots a shocking 20-17 win in Super Bowl 36. The key to this game was, as it usually is when St. Louis loses, turnovers. St. Louis committed three while New England had none. Two of those turnovers were Kurt Warner interceptions, the first of which was returned 47-yards for a score by the Patriots Ty Law. 17 of the Pats’ 20 points were scored off of St. Louis turnovers, in fact the only points that weren’t were the final three, which won the game. St. Louis actually rallied from a 17-3 4th-quarter deficit on a two-yard Kurt Warner run and a 27-yard Warner to Ricky Proehl touchdown pass. However, following that second score, the Pats marched 53 yards to set-up the game-winning field goal. This is New England’s first-ever Super Bowl win.
