ALAMEDA (AP) — A day of extra work and plenty of time sitting home watching highlights were enough for Sebastian Janikowski to regain his sense of humor after missing a potential game-winning field goal for Oakland against Arizona.

As reporters walked up to him Wednesday to ask about what went wrong on his rough day, Janikowski immediately pointed his finger at the player sitting next to him in the locker room, jokingly blaming Shane Lechler for a bad hold.

After spending Monday ironing out the kinks on the practice field and Tuesday moping around at home watching highlights, Janikowski said he is now ready to put to rest the three field goals, including a 32-yarder on the final play of the Raiders’ 24-23 loss to the Cardinals last Sunday.
