For the second time during this young season, the Jets fell behind by 14 points to start the fourth quarter. The previous time against the Cowboys, the Jets were able to overcome the deficit after a series of misfortunate events for the Cowboys.
The raiders did not let what happened to them last week (against Buffalo) happen again as they were able to keep the Jets from making a comeback.
Darren McFadden was extremely impressive today as he was able to rush for 171 yards on 19 carries and 2 touchdowns against what is supposed to be one of the best run defenses in the National Football League.
Meanwhile the Jets running game could not get started as Shonn Greene and LaDainian Tomlinson were only able to rush for 95 yards combined.
The Jets defense also collapsed as Antonio Cromartie had several critical penalties called against him and a holding penalty on Calvin Pace on Oakland's second to last drive killed all of the momentum the Jets had on defense.
Both teams will have tough games next week as the Jets will stay on the road and travel to Baltimore to face the Ravens, while the Raiders will host the Patriots at the Coliseum.
