#2 Rob Bironas
Rob Bironas was consistently one of the best kickers in the NFL during his 9-year career. Although he only made the Pro Bowl one season, the same season he was voted first-team all-pro, he was always a guy you could count on when he game was on the line.
Bironas was never supposed to be a great NFL kicker. He bounced around on preseason rosters for years, and even played Arena Football with the Charleston Swamp Foxes, the Carolina Cobras, and the New York Dragons.
The Titans picked up Rob Bironas in 2005 to give Ola Kimrin training camp competition. Bironas won over the Titans staff and ended up having a successful career with the team.
Bironas kicked 11 game-winning field goals in his career, but two games in particular stand out to me when I think about him.
The first game was against the Houston Texans in Houston in 2007. The Titans were down 36-35 with little time remaining. They drove down the field and with little time left, Rob Bironas was set up for a 29-yard field goal. He had already made 7 field goals to that point. Bironas drilled the game-winner as time expired and set the NFL record that still stands today with 8 field goals in a game.
The other game was against another division rival. In 2006, the Indianapolis Colts were on their way to a Super Bowl. Along the way, the met Rob Bironas, the second-year kicker that nailed a 60-yard game-winning field goal against them in week 13.
