It was close… for a minute, but that didn’t last long as the Oakland Raiders cruised to a dominating win over the New York Jets.

We talked about it all last week, this was the way we needed to see this game go down. The Raiders are trying to compete for more than just a playoff berth and first round loss this season. They’re trying to live up to an offseason of hype where the Super Bowl was mentioned almost more often than it wasn’t.

In week one, the Raiders answered the call for a good start to the season by traveling to Tennessee to hand the Titans a two score loss in a game that never looked in doubt in the second half. The defense played much better than expected on defense and had the offense do just enough to get the win.

This week, the Raiders continued to justify the offseason hype by doing what they were supposed to do and taking the Jets out to the wood shed.

There were some ups and some downs and reasons for fans to get frustrated as the Jets offense did better than many expected it would but at the end of the day, the Raiders simply out classed the Jets in almost every aspect of the game. The offense was dangerously efficient and the defense made enough big plays to make sure the game never got too close.

With a final score of 45-20, the Raiders have plenty to look back on and smile after this game.

On defense, Karl Joseph was an absolute monster in the second half and you have to feel like he is still getting better. We really only saw Gareon Conley twice and that’s because on the first pass thrown his way he made one hell of a play and the Jets didn’t look his way again until late in the game. Conley gave up a short catch on that second target but overall, the Jets did their best to stay away from him, which is a great sign for the rookie.

On offense. Derek Carr was lethal throwing for 230 yards and three touchdowns as he led the Raiders to 45 points and the biggest win they’ve had since he’s been the starter. But he didn’t do it on his own by any means. The Raiders run game was very, very good as they scored two long touchdowns, one from Jalen Richard and one from Cordarrelle Patterson who lined up as a running back a few times. And then there’s Michael Crabtree who had another big game, catching all three touchdown passes Carr threw.
