Final: Jets 37, Raiders 27

Share

Filed at 2-minute warning . . .

The Raiders will have to wait another year to prove they can win in the Eastern time zone after absorbing a 37-27 loss Sunday to the New York Jets Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

It was a season-high point total for New York, which came in ranked 31st in the NFL in scoring but had little trouble moving the ball against a Raiders defense that was solid a month ago but a sieve over the past two games.

The Raiders, 4-9, have three chances to exceed last season’s win total and will be underdogs in all there games _ at home against Kansas City, on the road against San Diego and at home against Denver.

Oakland has now lost 13 consecutive games in the Eastern time zone dating back to 2009.

The Jets, who snapped a three-game win streak to improve to 6-7, scored on a 25-yard touchdown pass to Geno Smith to Jeremy Kerley, a 7-yard run by Smith, a blocked punt and recovery by Antonio Allen, a 15-yard run by Chris Ivory and field goals of 41, 23 and 49 yards by Nick Folk.

The Raiders best moments came on big-yardage plays, as Marcel Reece ran 63 yards for one touchdown and Matt McGloin hit Rod Streater for a 48-yard score. Place kicker Sebastian Janikowski converted field goal attempts of 41 and 40 yards and missed from 52 yards.

Reece, playing as the lead back with Rashad Jennings sidelined with concussion symptoms, gained a career high 113 yards on 18 carries, including his touchdown run.

Oakland trailed 20-3 at halftime and never got the margin inside 10 points in the second half, with the Jets answering every Raiders score with one of their own.

Terrelle Pryor came in for one scheduled series in the first half and led the Raiders on a 58-yard drive ending in Janikowski’s 41-yard field goal.

In the battle of rookie quarterbacks, Smith got the better of McGloin, who was cheered on by three busloads of fans from his hometown of Scranton, Pa.

Smith was 16 of 25 for 219 yards with the touchdown pass and one interception. McGloin was 17 of 28 for 223 yards, two touchdodwns and an interception out of his own end zone to Ed Reed that the Jets turned into a field goal by Folk.

McGloin’s final touchdown came on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line to Mychal Rivera, by which time a light snow had begun falling and the Raiders were out of time outs.

    Like I said Ezekial Ansah should have been a Raider and you get Oline help later in the 3rd a corner in the 4th. And your draft looks a lot better……….period

    We gave up a 1st and a 2nd for a QB and Reg gives him away for a bum. Then drafts another bum in the 4th.

    He’s incompetent………period

  • 0tt0

    his guy

  • RaidingTexas

    Man coverage worked so well all those years.

  • DJ Johnny

    At least we can take “vastly improved defense” off the list of Reggie’s accomplishments now.
    Let me guess “they were tired”? A week and a half off wasn’t enough rest?
    I think we can take Bobby April off the ST coach of the yr candidates list as well.
    So awesome we have a defensive minded HC so that we don’t have rookies like Geno Smith score at will against us.
    So glad those days are over.

    Fitzpatrick was coming off of a terrible year. Flynn seemed to have upside. Fitzpatrick still sucks, regardless of what he did against us. Wouldn’t have turned out to be much better than Flynn in all likelihood.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    “your not a raider fan”

    Lmao !!!!!!

    I hate this team & Allen & will continue cheer during every loss as long as Allen and macgloin are here

  • There 2nd round pick made a lot of plays

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    Exactly. That’s how dumb Grimmace is. If he would stay out of the drive thru he could’ve had him

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Still mad that Pryor stunk up the joint today?

  • Alex7

    Bucs draft good QB, start winning. Interesting.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Racist POS.

  • He has never DT in his life in the NFL.

  • Alex7

    Special teams and McGloin gave up 14 points.

    You didn’t watch the game?

  • roger

    You’re an idiot. Just an idiot.

  • funnyfalcon

    Talent’s not there, but the preparation and breakdowns in the game sucked too. Full team loss here.

  • David C. Moorman

    RGIII svcks hvge…and Oakland couldn’t beat him. WTF?

  • Rico Stifler

    No, RM tried for as long as he could to get palmer to take a pay cut to free up some space. when palmer wouldn’t do it, RM ceded that he had to move Palmer. By that time Fitzpatrick was already gone.

  • 0tt0

    fitz had more experience and didnt cost draft picks…..flynn had 1-2 games experience and cost 2 picks at that time(even though we got one back cause he sucked)

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    We’ve just 5 out of our last 6 games. We lost today to a cruddy team with a lousy QB and a foot-sniffing buffoon at HC.

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    You can’t use logic on them.

  • SnB Stop the Run

    JaMichael McFadden-Bey.

    What a player he turned out be!

  • SR Raider

    You may think of yourself as a fan, but if you cheer for the other team that makes you scum in my book. Just like Chief, Broncos, and Charger fans

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    We needed secondary and linebacking, too many needs, can’t get them all at once.

  • David C. Moorman

    Hahahahaha!

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Do you want to trust RM with that task after what he did with Palmer, Flynn and Wilson?

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    You do realize Geno Smith scored next to nothing for 3 straight games right? They were a horrible offense coming in.

  • Rico Stifler

    Spoken like the idiot you are. RM was trying to get Palmer to take a pay cut. By the time RM gave up, Fitzpatrick had already been signed.

  • RaiderLen

    You can’t have a roster full of projects.

    Al became enamored more and more with measurables a He grew older.

    Almost as if He were playing a video game.

  • 0tt0

    reggie offered up a contract everyone knew he wouldnt sign…..that contract was not even an option for anyone

  • Al_is_theraiders

    better than 8-21…

  • Alex7

    Ansah? Except Houston has outplayed him 10 times over.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    Notice that TP still does’t know the plays. Had to call time out when he got to the line and the play clock was running out. What’s up with his brain?

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    So does Geno…It’s this Denise led defense

  • Papertiger

    Can’t you just go mourn Nelson Mandela or watch a Tyler Perry movie or something?

  • HELLSBELLS

    If DA was black you would not here a peep out of him.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    Are u a complete idiot? I’ve been saying for weeks that I want DA fired. Pay attention.

  • Rico Stifler

    Fitz was a bad starter and Flynn didn’t get much of a chance to start. Like I said, i can see why RM traded for Flynn since he didn’t get much chance to be a starter.

  • roger

    Don’t forget the penalty problem. 109 on the year in 13 games. For you alex7, that’s almost 8 a game.

  • Sj24

    A football team doesn’t end at qb you have to look at coaching and defense. Which I’m not sure if this coach can take get it done in the future when we have more talented teams

  • 0ak R8rs

    We were looking for a starter. NOt a backup. You honestly wanna say you would have been pumped that Ryan Fitzpatrick was our anointed starter at the start of preseason? Really? Seriously?

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Mirror opposite of 11 angry men???

  • Alex7

    You think other teams were offering 2nd and 3rd round picks for Palmer…

    and Reggie was like…no thanks.

    You fail.

  • RaiderLen

    That was predictable.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    STFU.

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    So it was Tebow taht got the Donkos a division title in 2011? And ALex Smith is responsible for the Chiefs turnaround? Got ya

  • Alex7

    awww, he didn’t score next to nothing 4 weeks in a row. that’s…regression to the mean.

  • Rico Stifler

    So? He needed palmer to take a pay cut from his 13M salary for the sake of the team so he could bring in more FAs.

  • Papertiger

    I hate to say it, but he’s done for. McGloin might be a serviceable back-up. May as well start Toddler Hands at this point.

  • David C. Moorman

    It’s coaching. It’s always been coaching. Now it’s all on RM after this year.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    no you cant, but he hit on some of his picks no longer were they projects. you get the ross’s, youngs, and the burris’ well thats all they will ever be…avg, in this case below avg.
