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.

    It turns out Caleb Brantley isn't quite the dirtbag that millions of people presumed. It's too bad the damage to his reputation and bank account is already done.

  2. Rays let early lead get away again in loss to Angels (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  4. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has

    Sports

    ST. PETERSBURG

    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
