Five field goals earn Sebastian Janikowski player of the week honor

Only one player scored any points in Sunday’s Raiders-Chiefs game, so it’s unsurprising that that player won an AFC player of the week honor.

Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski, who kicked five field goals in Oakland’s 15-0 win over Kansas City, has been named the special teams player of the week.

Janikowski was good from 20, 50, 57, 30 and 41 yards, and his 57-yarder was his longest of the season. Janikowski now has 42 field goals of 50 or more yards in his career, tied with John Kasay for the second-most in NFL history. (Lions kicker Jason Hanson has the most in NFL history, with 52.)

This is the seventh time in Janikowski’s 13-year career that he has been named AFC special teams player of the week.

  1. As a Bronco fan, it hurts me to admit the truth sometimes… but I consider Janikowski one of the all time great kickers. Congrats, it’s well deserved!

  2. Just waiting on that 2014 press conference when Reggie Mac introduces the next head Coach of the Oakland Raiders. Going by Knapp’s history or resume its usually two years before he and his head coach get fired.

    One more year to go.

  3. props to sea bass…funny when watch so many other games and you see those teams punting from around the 42 or so….not w/ seabass
