Vinatieri worried about wins, not records

Adam Vinatieri has had his fair share of big moments kicking field goals in the NFL. At 38, the 16-year veteran owns eight NFL kicking-records and is primed to add more to his résumé.

With a new three-year contract, records are not what he’s focused on for the 2011 season.

“At this point, no. For me, the only record that matters is wins and losses and playoffs and that kind of stuff,” Vinatieri said. “I’ve always said that what I’ve done is I evaluate the year and see what I can approve on and what I can do better. I suppose at the end of my career I can turn around and look at it and say ‘Hmm, that was pretty cool.’ But as of right now, I don’t really pay attention to stats and records and all that. ”

AFC South title a goal

The Indianapolis Colts have won the AFC South division title seven of the nine years it has existed.

Colts guard Jamey Richard realizes the importance of taking the right approach to win another division crown.

“There are big goals and little goals, and the important thing is you have to do the little things to obtain the bigger goals,” Richard said. “It is important to worry about taking baby steps and do the little things first like worrying about game by game. The big things will take care of themselves.”
