Raiders vs. Jets Halftime Score: Darren McFadden, Jason Campbell, Sebastian Janikowski Tie Game At 17

The Oakland Raiders and New York Jets are shooting it out in the Coliseum. Or at least in Oakland's case, they're grinding up the yards. Darren McFadden took an outside pitch left late in the second quarter, juked his way away from Oakland defenders, and then blasted his way into the end zone on a 70 yard touchdown. After a final possession by the Jets stalled, Jason Campbell completed six straight passes to receivers Denarius Moore, Chaz Schilens, Michael Bush, and Kevin Boss to set up a routine Sebastian Janikowski 50+ yard field goal (this one from 53) to help Oakland tie things up with New York at halftime.

Antithetical  to the defensive stylings of both teams, the Jets and Raiders have combined for 481 total yards. Behind McFadden's 121 rushing yards (on 11 yards per rushing attempt!), the Raiders have put 146 rushing yards on the ground. The Jets have gotten most of their offense through the air, the majority coming on a LaDainian Tomlinson 74 yard catch from Mark Sanchez.
