"Today is as bad as we played this whole season," safety Charles Woodson said. "It was really embarrassing to be part of it. We looked like the Bad News Bears out there. I do want to give a lot of credit to our offense. They never stopped fighting and really gave us a chance to still be in the game."

After falling behind 20-3, Oakland got on the scoreboard right away in the second half as Reece zipped up the middle for a 63-yard touchdown. The Jets came right back as Smith ran for an 8-yard score.

McGloin connected with Rod Streater on a 48-yard touchdown pass on a ball threaded between Ed Reed and Antonio Cromartie, who smacked into each other that made it 27-17 in the third quarter.

"As an offense we settled in, made some adjustments at halftime, which was good to see," McGloin said. "We played well in the second half and competed."

But Chris Ivory blasted into the end zone from 15 yards, slipping out of three tackle attempts and dragging a fourth Raiders defender over the goal line for a 37-20 lead. The play was set up by Smith's 32-yard scramble.
