After spending his first Sunday on the sidelines watching in more than 13 years, Eli Manning was able to draw one big conclusion.

He doesn't want his career to end like that.

Geno Smith wasn't terrible in his first start with the Giants and his first extended action in more than two years. Even Giants head coach Ben McAdoo seemed pleased with Smith's performance.

Just not enough to guarantee Smith another start next week.

If the Giants' 24-17 loss in Oakland was the final game of the Ben McAdoo era, the embattled coach swears he doesn't know it. He plans to show up for work, bright and early Monday morning.

At least he will, as long as he can still get in the door.

"I'm going to coach this team as long as my key card works," McAdoo said in his postgame press conference at Oakland Coliseum. "I'm going to show up tomorrow morning ready to go tomorrow and get this thing cleaned up and move onto the next one."

Giants quarterback Geno Smith called out former Jets head coach Rex Ryan after Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders by calling him a "coward."

Smith, who started for Eli Manning on Sunday, played 30 games under Ryan with the Jets in 2013 and 2014. Amid the news the Giants were turning to Smith, the former second-round pick, Ryan said, according to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, "I love Geno Smith. Great guy. I just don't want him playing quarterback for me."

The 27-year-old Smith told reporters after Sunday's game he was hurt by Ryan's comments.

"I did see one of my ex-coaches say he didn't want me to be his quarterback. That really upset me," Smith said after the game. "A guy that we saved his job in 2013. We fought our a-- for him both years. For him to say that shows how much of a coward he is."

For the first time in 13 years, Eli Manning got to stand on the sideline and watch his Giants teammates play. And what he saw sure must have looked familiar.

Despite the new quarterback, it was the same ugly result for the Giants, proving pretty clearly that he was far from this team's biggest problem. The Giants couldn't run; their receivers couldn't get open with any regularity; and the offensive line, as usual, couldn't block.

Geno Smith? He did just fine. But his offense managed a measly 265 yards in a 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Jets linebacker Jordan Jenkins was not happy with how Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch danced during Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders at Oakland Coliseum.

Jenkins, who was upset at the way the Jets lost, didn't like seeing Lynch dancing and celebrating on the sideline after Oakland took a 35-13 lead on Jalen Richard's 52-yard touchdown run.

"I'm an old-school guy," Jenkins said, according to NJ.com's Darryl Slater. "I don't like when things like that happen. That was embarrassing, losing like that, and to have Marshawn dancing like that. Seeing that happen, that should infuriate the whole [Jets] team. It should infuriate everybody. And we should have to have a good response coming into next Sunday."

Bryce Petty will be the New York Jets' No. 2 quarterback for the near future, head coach Todd Bowles said after Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders at Oakland Coliseum.

Bowles did not initially name a backup quarterback to Josh McCown. Although Petty was listed second on the depth chart prior to the season, he was inactive for New York's Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills due to a sprained MCL.

Christian Hackenberg, the Jets' 2016 second-round pick, was listed as inactive for Sunday's game.

The Jets are not a good football team, so when they have an opportunity -- any opportunity -- they have to take advantage.

That's why what happened at the end of the first half of Sunday's 45-20 loss was so catastrophic to their chances on Sunday in Oakland. Forget the final score. Forget that this game turned into a blowout. And forget all the reasons why the Raiders deserved to win this game big.

Bowles and McCown on 45-20 loss 00:01:56
Jets head coach Todd Bowles and quarterback Josh McCown talk about what went wrong in the team's 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Marshawn Lynch ran for a touchdown in his first home game with Oakland and Derek Carr threw three TD passes to Michael Crabtree to lead the Raiders to a 45-20 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday.

Cordarrelle Patterson and Jalen Richard added long touchdown runs to help put the game away and give the Raiders (2-0) wins in the opening two games of the season for the first time since their AFC championship season in 2002.

Josh McCown threw a pair of TD passes to Jermaine Kearse but the Jets (0-2) proved to be no match for the more powerful and talented Raiders. >> Read more

Jets right tackle Brandon Shell will make his first visit to Oakland Coliseum on Sunday when New York faces the Raiders, but he won't be the first Shell to play there.

Shell's great uncle, Art Shell, was a Pro Football Hall of Fame left tackle for the Raiders between 1968 and 1982, leading Oakland to two Super Bowls and going to eight Pro Bowls.

"I've seen some tape of [Art Shell] and Gene Upshaw from when they played back in the day," Shell, 25, told the New York Post's Alex Squadron.

Shell will likely have to try to block Raiders defensive end Kahlil Mack, who has emerged as one of the NFL's top defensive players as he has forced seven fumbles and recorded 26 sacks since 2015.

(AP) -- Oakland Raiders rookie receiver Amari Cooper was added to the Pro Bowl as an injury replacement.

The NFL announced Thursday that Cooper would take the place of New York Jets wideout Brandon Marshall.

Cooper is the fifth Raiders player to get the honor, joining injury replacement quarterback Derek Carr, safety Charles Woodson, pass rusher Khalil Mack and fullback Marcel Reece. Reece will not play because of a suspension for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

Cooper led all rookies with 72 catches for 1,070 yards this season. He is the sixth Raiders rookie to make the Pro Bowl, joining Woodson, Tim Brown, Marcus Allen, Ray Guy and Raymond Chester.

Got a?Case of the Mondays? Fear not! Columnist and TheJetsBlog Podcast co-host?Corey Griffin?has you covered every?Monday?morning with thoughts, ideas and opinions about all things Jets.Evaluating the AFC playoff picture through only 10 weeks is akin to watching an 87-year-old put together a puzzle without his glasses. It looks a little jumbled, there?s definitely some pieces missing and it?ll probably be a while before the picture looks coherent.

For all their dominance, the Broncos are buoyed by a 38-year-old quarterback with failing legs. Their chief rival for the No. 1 seed, undefeated Kansas City, is not nearly as imposing as their record, despite a No. 1 scoring defense and Jamaal Charles? MVP campaign. The Patriots, when healthy, look like the AFC?s best team, but they won?t be 100 percent any time this season. Meanwhile, the Colts were just worked in their own building by a Brian Schottenheimer and Kellen Clemens-led offense and the Bengals continue to ebb and flow on Andy Dalton?s schizophrenic arm (and head).

The Giants will have a logjam in the backfield Sunday when the team hosts the Oakland Raiders, but that could wind up being a good thing.

Andre Brown is set to make his return coming off a broken left leg, and the timing is great, since David Wilson has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said that Brown might not be physically capable of shouldering the entire load at this point, but even so, he?s expecting Brown to contribute in any way possible, especially as a pass blocker.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor leads all NFL QBs in rushing yards with 485.

Option-style and mobile QBs are nothing new to the Giants. They faced Michael Vick for years, as well as RGIII, Cam Newton, Colin Kaepernick and others. They know the dynamics and challenges those type of players can bring.

This week, the Giants will be facing the enigmatic Terrelle Pryor, a 6'4" QB who has extraordinary and unique athletic ability. A highly-recruited high schooler, Pryor starred at Ohio State and was selected by Oakland in the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft.

Jack Tatum , "The Assassin", passed away of a heart attack today in an Oakland hospital.

Tatum was a All-Star defensive back at Ohio State in the late 1960's and then a Pro-Bowler with the Oakland Raiders, making a name for himself by leveling receivers with vicious hits that would most likely get him banned in today's NFL.

Overview

The Raiders have lost 11 or more games each of the past six seasons - an NFL record.? This year they could be on their way to a seventh.? After they leave New Jersey,? their schedule is a daunting one that includes: the rest of the NFC East, the Jets, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Denver and Baltimore.? In their current state, the Raiders would be lucky to win two of those games. They are ranked 32nd - last - in the NFL in total offense.

Their offensive line is in disarray due to injury.? Head coach Tom Cable told reporters of the changes yesterday.

Eric Pears will start at right tackle for the injured Cornell Green;? Chris Morris moves from center to left guard to sure up the line.? The usual starter is former first-round selection Robert Gallery, who broke his leg two weeks ago vs the Chiefs and will miss this week's game.? Samson Satale will start at center.

Week Five has the 1-3 Oakland Raiders - a team that has been consistently getting it wrong - coming to the Meadowlands to play the 4-0 New York Giants - an organization that has been consistently getting it right.

The Raiders were once proud and prolific franchise that in past decades captured the hearts of rebels, renegades and castoffs all over the world.? That was before the NFL became a structured business that leveled the playing field for all teams.

Since then, the Raiders have failed to modernize and change with the times, a practice that they got away with successfully in the past.? Unfortunately for them, the 2009 version of the NFL is a highly-competitive environment that requires each team to operate under a cutting-edge business model, or suffer the consequences.
