Jets At Raiders: When New York Has The Ball

(Sports Network) - The New York Jets are 8-1 when quarterback Mark Sanchez has two-plus touchdown passes in a game. He had a 107.0 passer rating in his only meeting against the Raiders back in 2009. Running back LaDainian Tomlinson has 2,017 rush yards and 22 rush touchdowns against the Raiders, his most versus any opponent. The ex-Charger needs 56 receiving yards to surpass Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas (4,458) for 15th-most by a running back in NFL history, and needs just one touchdown to become only the third player in NFL history with 160 total, joining Jerry Rice (208) and Emmitt Smith (175). Running back Shonn Greene had career-bests in rushing yards (144) and touchdowns (2) against the Raiders in that 2009 rout and posted his first rushing score of the season last week. In his last meeting with the Raiders, which came while with Pittsburgh in 2009, wide receiver Santonio Holmes had eight receptions for 149 yards with a touchdown. Fellow wideout Derrick Mason needs 83 receiving yards to become the 18th player in league history to reach 12,000, while tight end Dustin Keller (101 yards) had his third career 100-yard game last week. The Jets are 3-0 in such games.

Seymour has 6 1/2 career sacks against New York and cornerback Stanford Routt had his first interception of the season last week. Second-year middle linebacker Rolando McClain leads the Raiders with 11 tackles.

New York is seventh in scoring (29.5 ppg) and 21st in total yards (321.5 ypg), with the Raiders placing in a tie for 26th in scoring defense (29.0 ppg) and stand 25th in yards allowed (395.5 ypg).
