Sebastian Janikowski (Polish pronunciation: [sɛˈbastjan janiˈkɔfskʲi]; born March 2, 1978) is a Polish-born American football placekicker for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for Florida State University, and was a two-time consensus All-American. He is nicknamed The Polish Cannon because he is considered to have one of the strongest kicking legs in the league, and leads the NFL in kickoffs for touchbacks. On September 12, 2011 in a Monday Night Football game against the Denver Broncos, he tied the previous NFL record for the longest field goal at 63 yards, sharing the record with Tom Dempsey, Jason Elam and David Akers. The record stood for just over two years when it was broken by Matt Prater on December 8, 2013.
