Raiders 34, Jets 20

Carr, Raiders remain in groove

OAKLAND, Calif. — A year after entering November in search of their first win, Derek Carr and the Raiders are contenders.

Carr threw for 333 yards and four touchdowns to help Oakland pick apart the Jets' vaunted defense for a victory that gave the Raiders a winning record this late in the season for the first time since 2011.

"We want more," Carr said. "We're not satisfied with 'We're over .500.' … I'm not built that way."

Latavius Murray ran for 113 yards, Andre Holmes caught two touchdowns and Michael Crabtree had 102 yards receiving and a score. Safety Charles Woodson, 39, chipped in with his league-leading fifth interception.

Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick left with a torn left thumb ligament on the opening drive. Former starter Geno Smith threw for 265 yards and two scores in his first action since getting his jaw broken on a punch in the locker room by then-teammate IK Enemkpali.

    TAMPA — It's a blink-and-you-miss-it nuance, but in Sunday's opener against Chicago, on their very first defensive snap, the Bucs lined up in a 3-4 defense.
