Recap


Darren McFadden went off for 171 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries as the Oakland Raiders ran all over the vaunted New York Jets defense en route to a 34-24 victory in their home opener on Sunday.

Darrius Moore and Michael Bush each added a rushing touchdown and the defense forced two turnovers for the Raiders (2-1), who totaled 234 yards on the ground.

The Jets had only allowed three 100-yard rushing days since Rex Ryan took over as head coach in 2009. McFadden wasted little time making it four, breaking free for a 70-yard touchdown up the left side with 3:40 left in the first half.

McFadden crossed the 100-yard mark with that run and went into the half already at 120.

Sebastian Janikowski’s 54-yard field goal as time expired knotted it at 17-17 going into the locker room.

Oakland took control at the end of the third quarter when Moore capped a four-play, 63-yard drive with a 23-yard touchdown run.

Antonio Cromartie fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and the Raiders needed only two more rushes to punch it in for another score, this time with Bush taking the 1-yard plunge into the end zone.

New York (2-1) pulled within a touchdown when Mark Sanchez and Plaxico Burress hooked up for a 16-yard score with 5:33 left.

But Janikowski kicked another field goal and Sanchez (369 yards) could not get into the end zone with a quarterback sneak on fourth-and-goal from the Oakland 2-yard line in the final minute.
