Janikowski boots Raiders to win over Steelers

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 43-yard field goal on the last play as the Oakland Raiders scored the final 13 points after wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was knocked out and hospitalized by a scary hit to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-31 on Sunday.

will re-air the Oakland Raiders' 34-31 win over the Pittsburgh  Steelers in Week 3 on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 9:30 p.m. ET.

The game turned somber early in the fourth quarter when Heyward-Bey was knocked unconscious by a helmet-to-helmet hit in the end zone by Steelers safety Ryan Mundy that was not called a penalty by the replacement officials. Heyward-Bey was taken to the hospital with a neck injury.

Carson Palmer then threw his third touchdown pass for Oakland (1-2), and Janikowski kicked two field goals to beat the Steelers (1-2) and give first-year Raiders coach Dennis Allen his first win.
