Jets Blow Out Raiders

Well the game is officially over after being decided in the first half. The Raiders looked to look more like the team that the Giants played than the one that upset the Eagles. The Jets dominated in every facet of this game and it never looked close. The Raiders were able to make some plays but not consistently enough to punch it into the end zone. The Jets rebounded nicely specifically Mark Sanchez who played more like Sanchize than Broadway Schmo., blowing out the Raiders 38-0.

Offensively the Jets were able to establish one hell of a running game having two players with over a hundred yards rushing even after Leon Washington went down with an injury. Sanchez didn’t mesmerize anyone but he did what he did the first couple weeks. Mainly take advantage of good field position and avoided the turnover.

Defensively the unit played great, evidence by the shut-out. I know this is an inferior opponent but the defense looked very confident and at no point did the Raiders seem like they had much of a chance. The biggest problem I saw was the fact that the Raiders were able to run the ball so effectively, a problem you thought you would see with Jenkins done for the season. Next week they are going up against a good running team in Miami and they can have a similar performance to the one from Monday night a couple weeks ago.

It was nice to stop the losing streak and stay just a game behind the Patriots. Next week is a very important match-up as a loss would mean a series sweep by the Dolphins something that will hurt if the Jets get it down to a tie-breaker. For now the Jets are 4-3 getting back on the winning track.
