Janikowski Ties Record Field Goal Mark

Sebastian Janikowski, aka "The Polish Cannon", tied an NFL record with a 63-yard field goal as Oakland Raiders beat the Denver Broncos 23-20. This guy's got a monster leg, but I wonder if mile-high altitude in Denver helped him out a bit? Regardless, its still a pretty cool achievement for him.

Damn, you beat me to posting this. Although I was going to put it in the NFL thread.

im sure the altitude helped. jason elam used to kick a lot of long fgs there. but whatever janikowski is the best kicker in the league imo and also the highest paid. no one makes long kicks as consistently as he does.

He supposedly kicked a 70+ yard fg in practice before the game.

Janikowski is one interesting character. He's gotten a DUI and was in more than one bar fight.

At least he consistently performs well on the field though.
