Raiders Defeat Eagles, 16-10

August 07, 2006|From the Associated Press

Sebastian Janikowski made field goals of 50, 51 and 24 yards Sunday night, lifting the Oakland Raiders over the Philadelphia Eagles, 16-10, in the Hall of Fame game at Canton, Ohio, to open the NFL preseason.

Philadelphia's David Akers set a game record with a 55-yarder in the second quarter.

Eagles running back Bruce Perry was carried off on a stretcher with 1 minute 14 seconds remaining, his head immobilized. He was tackled by rookie Timi Wusu on a running play. Perry gave a thumbs up as he was wheeled to an ambulance and taken to a hospital.

Eagles Coach Andy Reid said Perry had a concussion.

Art Shell got off to a winning start in his return as Raiders coach after a dozen years.

Brian Dawkins agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Eagles that could keep the five-time Pro Bowl safety in Philadelphia through the 2008 season.

Dawkins, who will turn 33 in October, was to earn $3 million in the final year of his contract this season. Terms of the new deal weren't immediately known.

A second-round pick from Clemson in 1996, Dawkins has averaged 94 tackles per season, and his 28 interceptions are the fifth-highest total in team history.

Minnesota Vikings safety Tank Williams will probably sit out the season because of an injury to his left kneecap suffered Saturday during training camp practice.

Coach Brad Childress said Sunday that no roster move had been made regarding Williams, who signed with the Vikings as a free agent this year after four seasons with Tennessee.

Williams was hurt while backpedaling during a passing drill. *

Jeremy Shockey made two nice plays as he participated in team drills for the first time since he suffered a concussion while trying to catch a pass last week.

The three-time Pro Bowl tight end rejoined the New York Giants' first-team offense during morning practice. He made a leaping grab of a 25-yard pass from Eli Manning and a sliding, juggling catch on a ball thrown by backup Tim Hasselbeck.
