Walsh gets a good matchup against a Lions team that does not put up the greatest defensive attack and there is the plus that he gets to kick in the dome. The Vikings should be able to move the ball down the field and allow Walsh to convert some field goals and extra points (like the six field goals and four extra points a season ago).
Janikowski has to be hoping that the Raiders can somehow move that horrible offense down the field and get him a few 40 to 50 yard attempts. I'm thinking he'll get a few field goals and maybe an extra point against the Colts.

Walsh earned a Pro Bowl nod last season with a 92.1-percent success rate on field goals and he went 10-for-10 on field goals from 50+ yards out (an NFL record). The Vikings offense will not afford Walsh many PATs, but that deficiency could actually increase the number of field goal attempts he receives in 2013. Keep in mind this is the last year Walsh will get to kick the majority of his games under a dome before Minnesota relocates to an outdoor stadium in 2014.
Janikowski converted a career-high 91.2-percent of his field goal attempts last season. He always sees plenty of opportunities from 50+ yards, but he's dealing with a calf injury that may limit those opportunities early on in the season. He'd be ranked higher if the Raiders could field a respectable offense, which is not to be expected this season.

Adrian Peterson gets Blair his chances. Sometimes AP is so good he just steals the TD. Regardless, Walsh's leg is for real.
Nobody in the NFL has a stronger leg. Oakland will have to get their points somehow this season, Janikowski and that boot will get it done.
