Janikowski's

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Sebastian Janikowski missed a 32-yard field goal as the game ended to allow the Arizona Cardinals to escape with a 24-23 victory over the Oakland Raiders Sunday in the Cardinals' home opener, a game littered with mistakes on both sides from start to finish.

The kick, after a pass interference call against Arizona's Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, was wide left. Janikowski missed two others in the game, a 41-yarder and a 58-yarder. Both were wide right.

LaRod Stephens-Howling returned the opening kickoff 102 yards for a touchdown for Arizona (2-1) and Derek Anderson threw two touchdown passes, including an 8-yarder to Larry Fitzgerald that proved to be the game winner.

Oakland (1-2) committed 11 penalties for 123 yards, Arizona seven for 104.
