NYJ_Thomas Jones 1-yard run (Jay Feely kicks PAT), 12:54

NYJ_Mark Sanchez 3-yard run (Feely kicks PAT), 4:20


— Jets Steve Weatherford looks at retreating Raiders special teams and runs up the middle for first down on last play of quarter, gaining 16 yard. Special teams captain Isaiah Ekejiuba wasn’t looking until it was too late.

— Raiders defense holds up it send _ forces three-and-out following JaMarcus Russell’s second interception.

— Russell throws post to Todd Watkins in end zone, covered by Darrelle Revis like a blanket. Revis gets end zone interception. That’s three turnovers in the first quarter.

Ruins drive that included 19-yard pass to Tony Stewart and consecutive 17- and 9-yard gains by Justin Fargas.

— New formation _ Fargas splits wide, Gary Russell single back, runs a yard for first down.

— In the afterglow of a 24-yard completion to DHB, Russell, under pressure from David Harris, throws ill-advised pass directly to Jim Leonhard, who returns it 44 yards to the 4. Mark Sanchez scores on a 3-yard run.

— Johnnie Lee Higgins races up for fair catch, can’t get there, lets it go _ lucky it didn’t bounce right into him. Raiders open at 14-yard line.

— Nnamdi Asomugha missed a tackle on David Clowney behind first down stake on flat pass to left on third-and-3, Clowney gains 11 for first down. On next third-and-4, Raiders string out Jones and force punt.

— Michael Huff at deep safety for Jets second possession.

— Ugly drop on Raiders second possession. Russell throws a slant to Murphy for first down plus additional yardage. He drops it.

— The Raiders handed the ball to the Jets on their first play from scrimmage at the 4-yard line. Khalif Barnes, a surprise starter at right tackle, was beaten by Calvin Pace, who forced a fumble from Russell. It took the Jets four plays to score _ all runs from Jones. Jones finally made it through on fourth-and-goal.

    gradkowski isn’t going to change anything. It’s our gameplanning. It’s al’s meddling. You’ll see.

  • DarthPirate

    Catch That!!!! Jeeezus.

  • God damn, JaMarcus. Why can’t you play better defense? come on, tackle, JaMarcus. Tackle!

  • Jets wore down and demoralized the defense.

  • Cable looks like he wants to break someone’s jaw.

  • EMRaiders

    Could we see Grad now?

  • RaiderNationPA

    The defense is impressive. The only reason they looked good last week was because Philly never tried running the ball.

  • Russell was only drafted to spite Lane Kiffin. Russell’s agent knew that, and that’s why they wouldn’t budge. They knew Al would cave in, because proving Kiffin wrong was Al’s top priority.

    Glad I have NFL REDZONE. I am seeing just enough of the Raiders game to be sick without throwing up.

  • go put your stockin cap on & sit on the bench #2

  • RaiderNationPA

  • DarthPirate

  • 16yearsold16yearfan

    Where did u see him laugh

  • Wow. Gradkowski was awesome, guys. 3 and out, 2 of them nearly picks. So far, downgrade from JaMarcus. It’s the organization and the scheme, you idiots. But keep living in denial.

  • utahraiderfan

    He is laughing all the way to the bank !! what a bust

  • 16yearsold16yearfan

    Wow jamarcus looked bad on that last drive didn’t he. Oh you’re telling me that wasn’t him.

  • bwk223

    This team has more problems than we know… It’s a broken record at this point, but it starts with the three most important people in the organization. The Owner/GM, the Head Coach and the starting QB. The culture of any organization is defined by these three people and right now, and for the past six years, we have had zero leadership and zero vision from these three parts of the team. Until we get these three parts of the team fixed we will not ever see sustained success in the NFL.

    Even in my wildest Raider nightmares did I see this one coming…

  • djohnnyg

    The media was RIGHT about Raiders.

  • playoff tickets on sale soon

  • utahraiderfan
