Bears Vs. Raiders: Janikowski Sets Team Record With Sixth Field Goal

Sunday's game between the Chicago Bears and the Oakland Raiders has been one of the toughest to watch of the day, thanks to a general lack of offense. Sebastian Janikowski has provided some intrigue, at least, kicking six field goals to give the Raiders an 18-7 lead at the beginning of the fourth quarter.

Janikowski will probably be the difference in several fantasy football leagues, where kickers are regarded as a necessary nuisance. He has hit from 40, 47, 42, 19, 37 and 44 yards out, setting a franchise record. He can thank a Raiders offense that has consistently shot itself in the foot throughout the day.

In the third quarter, the Raiders had a 12-yard Michael Bush touchdown run nullified due to a holding penalty  by guard Stefen Wisniewski. Quarterback Carson Palmer has struggled throughout the day on third downs near the red zone. He is 17-for-31 passing for 227 yards and an interception on the day.
