Janikowski AFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his three-field goal performance in a 23-20 victory over the Denver Broncos on Monday night.
Janikowski’s perfect night included an NFL record-tying 63-yard field goal at the end of the first half, three field goals without a miss and five touchbacks in as many kick-offs.
Buffalo Bills coach Chan Gailey said it’s time to start worrying about Janikowski kicking a field goal anytime the Raiders reach the 50-yard line.
“It’s huge to have that,” Gailey said in a conference call with the Bay Area media Wednesday morning. “The thing that has amazed me through the years is, yes, he has a powerful leg but he’s extremely accurate. Everybody wants to talk about how far he kicks it, but he gets points. Almost every time, I’m not saying he’s 100 percent, but he’s great at his trade. It’s a huge weapon for a team to be able to depend on points like that.”
Practice starts in about 15 minutes, as the Raiders work out at the time their game against the Bills starts Sunday.

    Do you realize if we win on Sunday, we’ll make the BSPN list of worst 2-0 teams in the NFL? and contender/pretender lists. Then we go 3-0, and it’s amplified by a shorter list. What happens if we go 4-0? Nothing, BSPN will never give the Raids respect.

    4 and 0 and beat the beloved Pats? I would love to see the analysts seething, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves

    Damn, Rob was right.

    Satele is just getting tossed around. Very ineffective so far.

    Again with this 3 WRs on one side and running the ball.

    I can easily see this play being expanded to have a pss option. Denver is NOT adjusting, and we are running into 7 and 8 man fronts.

    Pretty sure Saunders and Hue will see this on film and adjust this for the Buffalo game.

    With Ford’s hamstring tweaked, looks like we’ll get to see Hagan suited up after all.

    Did DHB start?

    If I were Buffalo, I would be gunning for SeeBass. He scores the most points of anyone on the Raiders.

  • qodrn

    I figure if SeeBass breaks the record for longest field goal, maybe he goes to the Pro Bowl for once.

    How does anyone justify RUN-DMC’s not being nominated for FED-EX Ground award.
