NFL Week 7 - New York Jets vs Oakland Raiders 38-0

 Calvin Pace stripped Bruce Gradkowski on Oakland's first possession of the second half and Jets DT Mike Devito recovered the loose ball. Gradkowski had driven Oakland down the field in relief of an ineffective JaMarcus Russell and given the team a brief energy jolt, but his fumble took all the life out of the Raiders.

Game ball

Pace started the proceedings by forcing a Russell fumble at the Raiders' 4-yard line on the game's first play from scrimmage and effectively ended them with his strip of Gradkowski. In between, he had another sack and finished with seven tackles, three sacks and the two forced fumbles.

Key Stat

One week after compiling 318 yards on the ground, the Jets finished with 316 rushing yards against the Raiders. That dominance running the ball enabled New York to control the time of possession and alleviate the pressure on rookie QB Mark Sanchez, who attempted only 15 passes.


Jets RB/KR Leon Washington left the game in the first quarter with a broken fibula. He will stay in Oakland and have surgery either Sunday or Monday. ... His replacement, rookie Shonn Greene, scored the first touchdowns of his career. ... Russell turned the ball over on three of the first four Raiders possessions. ... Against the two New York teams this season, Oakland has been outscored 82-7.
