Oakland Raiders Video: Shane Lechler 80 Yard Punt

Considering that Sebastian Janikowski has set a franchise record for the Oakland Raiders for field goals made, it's probably punter Shane Lechler who has the most impressive kick of the game. Not a huge surprise that these two players are virtual shoo-ins to be selected for the Pro Bowls a few weeks from now.

Check out the video of Lechler's boot after the jump to keep this ball away from Devin Hester.


Not as big as Doug Russell's 84 yard punt in 1938 for the Bears, but still plenty impressive enough for Oakland, and keeping it away from Hester late in a one score game was crucial. Oakland has rode their extraordinary special teams today, and it looks like it'll pay off with a big Raider victory.
