Yes, it’s only the preseason. We get it. However, that doesn’t make Adam Vinatieri’s 57-yard field goal any less impressive.

During the waning moments of the first quarter in the Indianapolis Colts’ exhibition game against the Baltimore Ravens, the 45-year-old kicker smashed the 57-yarder through the uprights.

Vinatieri even let out a little fist-pump to celebrate.

There will be plenty who are unimpressed because it’s merely a preseason game. And at them, we will scoff.

Vinatieri has connected on 559 field goals throughout his 22-year career, and his longest is 57 yards. That happened during the 2002 season with the New England Patriots.

So, he matched a personal-best kick Monday night. We’re here to celebrate him for it.
