K Sebastian Janikowski set a new Raiders record for the number of points scored in one season by accumulating 142 points on 43 extra points and 33 field goals in 2010. Janikowski's 142 points was second in the NFL and first in the AFC during the 2010 season. His point total surpassed Jeff Jaeger's 132 as the most points in one season by any Raider in team history. Adding to his previous career total of 1,000 points, Janikowski continues to top the all-time leading scorers list with 1,142. 

Janikowski's 33 field goals in 2010 are 2nd only to Jeff Jaeger's 35 in 1993. The 43 extra points are 2nd to Raider Legend George Blanda's 56 PATs in 1967.

Janikowski holds the record for the longest field goal in Raiders history, a 61-yarder scored at Cleveland in 2009. This season, Janikowski kicked the 2nd longest field goal, and the longest ever at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, a 59-yarder vs. the Indianapolis Colts on December 26, 2010.

The Raiders 11-year veteran surpassed his previous personal best of 22 touchbacks, accomplished three times (2002, 2007, 2008), with 29 this season.

Janikowski also recorded the first punt of his career against Denver on December 19, 2010, netting 33 yards. The punt was muffed by the Broncos and recovered by the Raiders. The Raiders scored a Janikowski field goal on the ensuing possession.
