Janikowski hits 61-yard field goal
Janikowski kicked a low liner that barely cleared the cross bar, hitting the goose-neck support and bouncing back onto the field Sunday. It was a career-long kick and a team record for the powerful left-footer. He was mobbed by a few teammates after pulling the Raiders within 17-9.
Janikowski's previous best was a 57-yarder last season in overtime to beat the New York Jets.
