Janikowski Field Goal In OT Lifts Raiders Over Chiefs
OAKLAND (AP) – Jason Campbell threw a 47-yard pass to rookie Jacoby Ford in overtime to set up a 33-yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski that gave the Oakland Raiders their biggest win in eight years, a 23-20 victory over the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
Campbell and Ford hooked up on a 29-yard pass in the closing seconds of regulation to set up Janikowski’s tying 41-yard field goal. The Raiders (5-4) then won it in overtime for their most significant victory since winning the 2002 AFC championship.
By winning their third straight game for the first time since that season, Oakland heads into its bye week just a half-game behind Kansas City (5-3) in the division.
