Raiders 33, Jaguars 16

Del Rio has warm welcome back

JACKSONVILLE — Raiders coach Jack Del Rio heard boos throughout his return to Jacksonville. Most of them weren't directed at him.

Latavius Murray scored twice in his first game back from turf toe, and the Raiders handled the listless Jaguars to give Del Rio a victory against his former team.

"It is good to come back here and get a good effort in this stadium," said Del Rio, who got a game ball from quarterback Derek Carr.

Murray had missed the previous two games. And Oakland played the kind of defense Del Rio has been looking for all season. The result was the team's most complete win of the season. The Raiders improved to 4-0 on the road and moved to 5-2 for the first time since 2001.

"Any back wants the ball in his hands, and I'm one of them," Murray said. "When we run the ball, we do good things.

The Jaguars did nothing to ease the heat on coach Gus Bradley, falling to 14-40 during his four seasons. Del Rio spent nine years coaching the Jaguars and was fired with five games left in the 2011 season.
