VIDEO: Shane Lechler 80-Yard Punt Puts Him In The Record Book

Oakland Raiders punter Shane Lechler set a new franchise record with an 80-yard punt today. Lechler’s punt came in the second quarter after the Raiders offense produced another three-and-out against the Chicago Bears. Lechler broke the franchise’s previous record of 77 yards held by Wayne Crow, who set it in 1961.

Of course, the only downside to a punt of that magnitude was that it gave the Bears a touchback. Chicago drove to the Raiders’ 35-yard line and kicked a field goal. That cut the Raiders lead to 18-15.

Oakland’s special teams are playing a big role in this game. Kicker Sebastian Janikowski has done all of the scoring for Oakland, booting six field goals, including a 47-yarder. Janikowski set a record of his own today. His six field goals are a new franchise record for the most in a single game.
