Final: Jets 37, Raiders 27

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.

    Would be interesting to know if Mark asked for the dead money moves. Very few multi year deals is definitely a bad sign

  • roger

    pretty much sums it up.realistically, probably looking at another decade of embarrassment

  • r8ter4evr

    As long as 4-12makes you happy but. Not Me

  • RaiderCDE

    Its the only solution which maintains continuity – prevents Mark from eating millions (beyond DA’s salary) – if the whole staff and Reggie were to be fired – Mark would be out like 20+ million at least and then have to spend at least that much to replace – this is a better short term solution.

    Reggie is getting one more offseason for sure, the current asst coaches are decent and Sporano would spark a fire on this team. If McGloin can develop and we get a solid oline and bell cow running game and get a toughness attitude – could be a recipe for a comeback year. With DA, don’t see it happening.

  • roger

    well they could go 3 and 13

  • 10centsworth

    0perhaps a flaw in your thinking, heaven forbid. A 10-12 win season would add, to my ill informed, no links in sight thinking, around 150 million to the worth of the Raiders. He has EVERY interest in putting a good team on that field.0

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    It attracts only young coaches looking to make a name for themselves.

  • DJ Johnny

    Ok, let’s say there’s no good reason to fire DA (for the sake of argument).
    Outside of continuity what reasons are there to keep him?
    What has he done to deserve faith going forward?
    The team is getting worse.
    By the looks of it today…much worse.

  • 2romes

    Not sure you read raidercde right.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    No incoming coach wants TP to be his starter.

  • 0ak R8rs

    A 10 or 12 win season? Sure. That would help. So would a fairry godmother and a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. All 3 r about as likely to happen right now.

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    Lock up the #1 pick for 2015

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    I have listened to Romo for over 10 years, ever since he retired and got gigs here and there, talking about the Raiders, the Niners, etc. He’s always good for a laugh. Always.

  • Alex7

    a franchise QB has taken Jim Schwartz, one of the least-respected head coaches, to the playoffs once and possibly again this year.

    a franchise QB made Jim Caldwell – a terrible HC – Coach of the Year.

    focus on what matters. Find a franchise QB, win games regardless of who your HC is.

  • roger

    The only firing needed was bresnahan after that season.

  • Alex7

    oh, and give your defense a ****-load of Ritalin, like the Seahawks.

  • Breaking_Black

    Unless you’re the saints. Then you need both.

  • DJ Johnny

    I’m with you on that.
    We do need that.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    There are only so many of them. The supply is limited.

  • Alex7

    eh, that year was a disaster for many reasons, not just the HC being gone. DC gone, other coaches banned, split locker over the DC, draft picks taken away…

  • KoolKell

    How many games has Mc Gloin won?

  • 0ak R8rs

    Oh. I see what you’re saying now. In your riddles, you mean of we won 10 or 12 games in one season Mark increases the value of the franchise by $150 million? Really? How?

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    Mark won’t want the number one pick–too expensive and if you blow it, as Al did with Jamarcus, no one will let you forget it.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    No qb has ever won or lost a game.

  • Alex7

    will be interesting if Sean ever has to coach without Brees.

  • RaiderCDE

    Like Matt Flynn or Tyler Wilson? Yeah we’ll just pluck one out of the draft. So much confidence Reggie will pick the right guy and that genius DA will develop him its a lock.

    We need real leadership just as much as we need a franchise QB. DA has got to go.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    one, right? Didn’t Manning only win 3 his first year. What’s your point?

  • lefty12

    He doesn’t read,I doubt he can.

  • KoolKell

    How many games has McGroin won?

    I love him btw.

  • KoolKell

    You’re a broken record.

    Same track for last two weeks.

    “It’s the players, not the coach”

    You post the same message 20 times a day.Is thinking of something new daunting?

  • RaiderCDE

    Adderal – they all have ADHD – lol

  • KoolKell

    I don’t have a point.
    Most here don’t notice.

  • KoolKell

    In a manly way, I’m not ashamed to admit.

  • Alex7

    not expensive after the new CBA 2 years ago.

    No one even remembers who had the #1 pick three years ago.

  • RaiderCDE

    I thought coaching doesnt matter? Its all about talent – looks like the Saints have some talent. Last season was what, then?

  • 0ak R8rs

    Depends on who we could get for $500k a year non guaranteed because we had to eat the DA contract. Might get ray handley for that. Or perhaps rich kotite.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Or maybe we could get Mike White back? Yea. That’d be great.

  • Alex7

    yeah, NFL keeps proving me right, whatcha want me to do?

    8 of the top 10 QBs and WRs are heading to the playoffs.

  • Alex7

    nah, you know it’s the 1st round that you find them in. Just no legit ones last year.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Thanks to the new CBA, despite our obvious money issues, the number one pick is not nearly the issue it used to be.

  • KoolKell

    Get that white bread pice of mfkr outta here.

    He don’t belong

  • DJ Johnny

    http://coacheshotseat.com/NFL/
    Since Rex was #1 and DA # 2 does DA move into first place now after today?

  • lefty12

    I’m sure that is what you are hoping for.

  • Alex7

    or any site that has a coach going to the playoffs in the “hot seat” isn’t worth much.

  • Jim Jesus

    in my book he does

  • the authoritative dr robert

    Nothing a coward impostor ever says ever has any weight.

    Ur a joke.

  • VanHeathen30

    Bowl Cut is too poor to fire the HC with 2 yrs left on his deal, but he’s quietly buying up minority shares while the team is a bottom feeder. Makes me think he’s going to run this losing program for the next two season just like this to try and stock pile talent to make the value higher when he sells after two more season?

  • Jim Jesus

    DA is #1

  • Alex7

    For entertainment purposes, I hope Mark hires Shanahan.

    I mean, if you want to do everything opposite of your dad…
