Vinitiari missed two FG tries, but kicked the game-winning FG near the end of overtime, helping the Patriots win 23-20. Reliant Stadium would prove a personal house of horrors for Vinitiari again in Superbowl XXXVIII against the Carolina Panthers. Vinitiari missed a FG try and a second try was blocked by Panthers player Shane Burton, both in the game's first quarter, but as in Superbowl XXXVI he kicked the winning FG at the end of regulation.
