Woodson, Janikowski chasing NFL records

8/27/2014

ALAMEDA, Calif. – Two veteran Oakland Raiders have an outside chance of setting NFL records that showcase both their brilliance and their longevity.

But again, it's a long shot to achieve those milestones in 2014.

Defensive back Charles Woodson, entering his 17th NFL, season, needs two interception returns for a touchdown to set an NFL record. Former Oakland player and coach Rod Woodson is the record-holder at 12. Charles Woodson, 37, hasn’t had an interception return for a score since 2011.

Meanwhile, Oakland kicker Sebastian Janikowski, in his 15th NFL season, has kicked 45 field goals of 50 yards or longer and needs eight to become the all-time NFL leader. Jason Hanson kicked 52 field goals of 50 yards or longer in his career from 1994-2012.

The most 50-yarders Janikowski has kicked in a season was seven in 2011. He had three 50-yarders in 2013.
