Raiders Vs. Bears Recap By The Numbers: Sebastian Janikowski Has A Field Day

On a day when the Oakland Raiders offense was having difficulty finding the end zone, their special teams were able to lead them to a 25-20 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday, in large part due to some talented feet that kicked their way into the record books.

Kicker Sebastian Janikowski scored 19 of Oakland's 25 points going six-for-six on field goal attempts and adding an extra point following Michael Bush's fourth quarter touchdown run. Janikowski's field goals came from 40, 47, 42, 19, 37 and 44 yards, setting a new Oakland record for most field goals in a single game.

Punter Shane Lechter also set an Oakland record with a massive 80 yard punt. Lechter was the unsung hero in the game, as his consistent long punts kept the Bears from getting too close. He had 273 yards on five punts, averaging 54.6 yards per punt.

Quarterback Carson Palmer had a solid enough game, finishing 21-for-37 with 301 passing yards, but was unable to complete a touchdown pass and threw an interception, which was Oakland's only turnover of the game.
