Jets Defeat Raiders 37-27 Post Game Notes


#60 D’Brickashaw Ferguson, #62 Vladimir Ducasse, #66 Willie Colon, #67 Brian Winters, #72 Caleb Schlauderaff, #74 Nick Mangold and #77 Austin Howard

Jets Debut:
Fifth-year RB/KR Darius Reynaud made his Green & White debut today and returned three kickoffs for a 25.0 yard average.

The Jets produced 37 points, 352 yards of total offense (209 passing, 143 rushing) and converted 53.8% (seven-of-13) on third down.

T D’Brickashaw Ferguson:
In today’s victory, T D’Brickashaw Ferguson made his 125th consecutive regular season start to begin his career, becoming the first player in team history to reach this milestone. Ferguson’s 125 consecutive starts lead all active offensive tackles.

QB Geno Smith:
Smith had success both through the air and on the ground in today’s win and finished 16-of-25 for 219 passing yards, one touchdown and one interception for a passer rating of 88.6. He had five carries for 50 yards and one touchdown, the third time this season he has a touchdown pass and a rushing touchdown in the same game.

In the third quarter, Smith rushed for his fourth touchdown of the season from eight yards out. His four rushing touchdowns are the most by a rookie quarterback in franchise history and tie for fifth by a Jets quarterback in a single-season and second by a rookie of any position.

The Jets are 4-0 in games when Smith has rushed for a touchdown. Smith scrambled up the middle on third down for a 32-yard gain, marking the third longest rush by a Jets quarterback, behind a 40-yard rush by Al Dorow in 1961 and a 39-yard run by Joe Namath in 1966.

The run set up a RB Chris Ivory touchdown that gave New York a 37-20 lead. His 50 rushing yards on are the most by a Jets QB since Brooks Bollinger gained 56 yards, also at home against OAK (12/11/05).

WR Jeremy Kerley:
Playing in his first game since suffering an elbow injury in Week Nine vs. NO (11/3), Kerley caught his third touchdown pass of the season, tying him for the team lead, and finished with four catches for 41 yards.

RB Chris Ivory:
Ivory carried 18 times for 76 yards (4.2 average), scoring on a 15-yard touchdown run in fourth quarter to increase the lead to 37-20. Ivory has rushed for 639 yards this season, 77 yards shy of his career-best 716, gained in his rookie season (2010) with NO.

TE Kellen Winslow:
With his 30-yard reception in the first quarter, his longest as a Jet, Winslow help set up the Jets first touchdown drive as Smith would cap the drive with a 25-yard pass to Kerley two plays later. Winslow finished the game with three receptions for a team-high 61 yards. The reception was also his longest since he pulled in a 37-yard catch at GB (11/20/11) as a member of TB.

20+ Yard Passing Plays:
Smith would connect with four different receivers on his four completions of 20+ yards, hitting WR Santonio Holmes for 32, Winslow for 30, Kerley for the 25-yard touchdown and RB Bilal Powell for 24. Entering the game, the Jets offense had 26 passing plays of 25+ yards, tied for the 10-most in the league.

S Ed Reed:
After a P Ryan Quigley punt pinned OAK inside their four-yard line in the second quarter, Reed jumped in front of QB Matt McGloin’s pass intended for FB/RB Jamize Olwale for his first interception as a Jet and the 62nd of his career. Reed’s pick led to a K Nick Folk field goal that extended New York’s lead to 13-3. His 62 interceptions lead all active players.

S Antonio Allen:
In the second quarter, Allen blocked P Marquette King’s punt and recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown. The play gave the Green & White a 20-3 lead and marked Allen’s second touchdown and second blocked punt of 2013. Allen is the first Jets defensive player to score multiple touchdowns in a season since S Dwight Lowery in 2010.

LB Calvin Pace:
Pace recorded his eighth sack of the season in the fourth quarter, matching his career high that he set in his first season as a Jet (2008). Pace also had four tackles, including two for a loss.

LB Quinton Coples:
On the final OAK drive, Coples brought down Matt McGloin for a 10-yard loss, his second sack in as many weeks and third this season. In the last five weeks, Coples has 20 quarterback hurries and two sacks.

K Nick Folk:
Folk knocked in field goals of 41, 23 and 51 yards, running his season numbers to 28-of-29. His 51-yard field goal at the end of the third quarter stretched the lead to 30-17 and was his 19th consecutive home field goal, matching him with Pat Leahy (1985-86) and Nick Lowery (1994-96) for the longest streak in team history.
