Only “-kowskis” allowed to score points
As far as we know, it was not Polish-American Appreciation Day in Foxborough, Massachusetts Sunday.
In a bizarre case of onomastics, the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots played a game in which every single point was scored by a player with a last name ending in “-kowski.”
First, Oakland kicker Sebastian Janikowski connected on a 49-yard field goal to put the Raiders up, 3-0. In the second quarter, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady connected on a 6-yard touchdown pass to tight end Rob Gronkowski, and New England kicker Stephen Gostkowski added the extra point. Gostkowski also tacked on a field goal of his own at the end of the half to put New England up 10-3.
The second half brought more the same. Janikowski added two more field goals to his ledger in the third quarter, from 37 and 47 yards, trimming the margin to 10-9. But Gotskowski put the game away with two more of his own in the fourth, hitting first from 20, then 36 yards to provide the final margin of 16-9.
In summary: 25 points scored, all by “-koswkis.”
