Dismal defense gets Raiders routed
The Jets easily drove down-field on the game's opening possession, cashing in on a Nick Folk 41-yard field goal. After a Raiders punt the Jets took over again, where Kevin Burnett intercepted a Geno Smith pass on the Jets' 37 yard line.
Missed opportunity, Jets cash in
Oakland failed to capitalize on the turnover, going three and out and missing a 52-yard field goal attempt. Smith and the Jets quickly capitalized on their own turnover scoring in just three plays. Jeremy Kerley caught a 25-yard touchdown pass in traffic to bring the lead to 10-0.
Terrelle Pryor came in to relieve a healthy Matt McGloin and gave the Raiders their first successful offensive drive. He moved the team 43 yards on 14 plays and Sebastian Janikowski ended the drive with a 41-yard field goal. Pryor never returned to action.
After a punt and a New York interception leading to a field goal, the Jets' special teams unit made a game-changing play. Antonio Allen blocked Marquette King's punt and recovered it in the endzone for a touchdown, pushing the lead to 20-3.
Reece gets loose
Oakland made quick work of bringing the game to a competitive margin, scoring immediately on the first second half possession. Marcel Reece exploited a seam in the defense and broke a 63-yard touchdown run.
A quick answer
The Jets answered right away, driving 65 yards to pay-dirt on 10 plays. Geno Smith ran in an eight-yard touchdown to give the Jets a 27-10 lead.
A shootout brews
The bullets continued to fly as Matt McGloin gunned a pass over the middle to Rod Streater, who took the pass 48 yards to the endzone, closing the gap to 27-17.
Ivory blasts through Raiders
The teams traded field goals, bringing the score to 30-20. The Jets then took over and began to run the clock. Unable to stop the Jets, Oakland allowed New York to move into the redzone. Chris Ivory ripped off a powerful 15-yard touchdown run leaving defenders in his wake. The score pushed the lead to 37-20 with nine minutes remaining.
Too little, too late
The Raiders answered with a one-yard touchdown pass to Mychal Rivera, but the drive took entirely too long. With just over two minutes remaining, a failed onside kick all but ended the game with the final score of 37-27, Jets.
