10. Patriots 17, Titans 14AFC Divisional, January 10, 2004
In limb-numbing weather the game-time temperature was 4 degrees the Patriots held off a resolute Tennessee team led by quarterback Steve McNair. Receiver Bethel Johnson, regarded as a bust in Patriots lore, had a big game, with a 41-yard touchdown catch and a crucial late first-down on a reverse, and Adam Vinatieri booted the winning field goal from 46 yards with 4:02 left in regulation. Given the circumstances, that field goal under such adverse conditions would rank as the career highlight. For Vinatieri, its at the back end of his top five.
