Their Previous Meeting: The last time these two teams met, the Jets had reeled off two straight wins including an overtime victory over the Cowboys to open the season. They headed to the West Coast for their first road trip of the season to face the 1-1 Raiders. Both offenses had explosive days while neither defense could muster much of anything and would come down to who would break first. The Raiders kicked things off with Darren McFadden walking in two yards out for the score however, the Jets quickly responded with Mark Sanchez taking the ball in a yard out to even the match. The Jets built up their lead in the second quarter with Sanchez finding LaDainian Tomlinson on an 18 yard pass while Nick Folk added a 21 yarder to put the Jets ahead. However, in the last 3:40 of the half, Oakland quickly got to work with McFadden breaking off a 70 yard run for a touchdown while Sebastian Janikowski hit a 54 yarder as time expired to once again tie the game. In the third, both teams volleyed back and forth with the football before Oakland managed to drive the field. Jason Campbell found Denarius Moore who took it 23 yards for the score with 40 seconds left in the quarter, giving Oakland the lead. An untimely muffed kickoff return by Antonio Cromartie saw the Raiders recover the ball at New York’s 13 yard line. Predictably, the Raiders managed to punch that one in from a yard out this time with Michael Bush. The Jets still had life left in them and got a shot in the arm when Sanchez found Plaxico Burress for the 16 yard touchdown to bring the Jets within one touchdown of tying the game. Oakland got the ball back on their own 20 however, the Jets’ defense let them down as they let the Raiders get down to New York’s own 31 yard line which set up Janikowski’s 49 yard field goal to go ahead by 10. With time running short, Joe McKnight had a timely 50 yard return to set the Jets up at their 42 and they proceeded to drive down the field to Oakland’s two yard line. Mark Sanchez appeared to have punched it in for a touchdown however, replay overturned the decision and Oakland managed to stop Sanchez a yard short the second time on fourth down. Oakland ran a play and kneeled to drain the remaining 49 seconds as the Jets lost 24-34.

If I could be convinced that Geno can grow mentally as a QB I'd feel better about the possibility of him as the future for the Jets at QB. I know he has not been helped this year by his supporting cast.

why not go for it and run off the seconds than risk a block.

Ivory may need to hit the ice tub after the game, but so will the Raiders defense, after the way he's pounded them.

How soft is that coverage team to not come away with that?

two struggling teams, but a good game to watch.but neither a playoff potential , however.

You know your pass rush has no teeth, when a rookie QB starts nonchalantly back-peddling before he hits his open man in the end zone.

doesn't matter. Even the Jets couldn't blow this one....

looked like a hold and not a block on the offensive line.

At some point someone is going to start giving Milliner is due that he is improving. His bad start as a rookie this year has developed into an expectation.

Has Winters name been mentioned today? If not, that is a big step forward for him.

@maynardfan Actually, this is pretty consistent with what you'd get during a win.  1000 comment threads usually only happen in playoff games and embarrassing losses.

Kerley is the only good WR on this roster who plays well consistently

markd

He sucks. He only played half decent because it was against a second rate team. Don't get fooled. He is a backup QB.

I say do a fake run like we did in 09

I bet they are letting make those screen plays of his.

@BILLY He got blown up a few times badly early on, but I think he's gotten better.

even good QB 's struggle against good defenses, Geno can at least be worked with

@markd Yes, improving. He been improving considerably since the Saints game.
