Derek Carr is the steal of the 2014 NFL Draft

Cromartie's bad Game - Carr linked up twice in the first half to beat Cromartie in coverage for touchdowns, part of a big first half where the Raiders raced out to a 21-6 lead.

Center Nick Mangold missed just the fourth game of his 10-year career with a neck injury, and Bowles is uncertain whether he'll play Sunday.

Seven players tried out for the Jets on Tuesday, but none of them were quarterbacks.

Another group that deserves a few credit for the lack of a run game for the Jets, the linebackers looked great on Sunday. It's Monday, the day after. Hopefully, he'll be okay but if he requires surgery down the road or no longer becomes an effective starting option, there is no telling what will happen to the Jets this season. Bowles was the defensive coordinator for the Cardinals, who lost starter Carson Palmer in November and backup Drew Stanton in December. With third-stringer Ryan Lindley at the helm, Arizona still won the NFC West but got knocked out of the playoffs in the first round.

Raiders running back Latavius Murray gained 113 yards on 20 carries against a New York defense that entered the game ranked first against the run in the NFL. "There's going to be injuries in the league. We're going to keep building on that, keep getting better as a defense". Smith bruised a shoulder and abdomen while absorbing vicious hits in the fourth quarter. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who has been a big supporter of Smith since he joined the team, defended his quarterback on Showtime's "Inside the National Football League". WR Kenbrell Thompkins (six catches for 41 yards) impressed in his Jets debut and might be the new no. 3 receiver. Leading rusher Chris Ivory, who came in with 501 yards rushing, was hit for losses or no gain seven times and ended up with 15 rushes for 17 yards. The Jets finished with just 74 yards on the ground, and 46 of those came on quarterback scrambles. Smith and Fitzpatrick combined for 36 costly yards. Defensively, Pittsburgh is allowing 18.4 points and 366.5 yards per game.

The Jets missed too many tackles to count in getting absolutely shredded by Raiders quarterback Derek Carr (23-of-36 for 333 yards and four touchdowns). In addition, the Jets didn't sack Carr once.

After catching at least five passes for the fifth time this season - breaking a rookie record that was previously held by Hall of Famer Marcus Allen - Cooper was his usual reserved self when pressed to talk about his matchup with Revis. Coming off a bye, the Raiders looked quicker and more efficient. Both teams had a chance to win and the game might be decided by a field goal. He averaged 1.1 yards per carry against Oakland.

Mallett has not only struggled on the field, but he's struggled off it too. Todd Bowles, the head coach, suddenly experiencing what it's like to lose two games in a row (Patriots the week before that), blames them both for not sliding when they needed to. Oakland scored on its first three possessions against the Jets. Taiwan Jones also foiled a series of Jets' defenders, running down the right side after a short pass for a 59-yard score in the third quarter.
