Pregame Ceremony

Shane Lechler Golden Toe Presentation

Raiders punter Shane Lechler will be presented with Pro Football Weekly's annual Golden Toe Award, presented to the NFL's most outstanding kicking specialist. Once a winner is selected, Pro Football Weekly contacts that player's team to request an actual shoe from the player. The shoe is taken and bronzed before being gilded and placed atop the trophy. PFW has been presenting this award annually since 1971. It was previously presented to a pair of former Raiders punters — Jeff Gossett in 1991 and Ray Guy in 1975.



National Anthem**

Though her name might not sound familiar, Sakai's voice has probably already touched you. From being the first voice you hear on Celine Dion's "A New Day," to vocals on records with Oleta Adams, Curtis Mayfield and Tower of Power to live performances with Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, and Chaka Khan, Sakai is called on by the best. A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, Sakai has traveled the world sharing her gift of song and beauty. Her sophomore album expresses life, love and pain from a soul who has been touched by others and is now giving back through her music.
