Underdog to Undefeated

Since Adam Vinatieri kicked the game winning field goal in the 2002 Super Bowl, the momentum has been building to this moment.

Back then, the New England Patriots were the lovable underdogs who beat the St. Louis Rams in one of the biggest upsets in football history.

This program aired on February 1, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
