    Quarterback Geno Smith saw his first action since getting punched in the locker room.

    Derek Carr threw for 333 yards and four touchdowns to help Oakland pick apart the New York Jets' vaunted defense in a 34-20 victory Sunday that announced the Raiders as a legitimate contender in the AFC.

    Latavius Murray ran for 113 yards, Andre Holmes caught two touchdown passes and Charles Woodson intercepted his league-leading fifth pass of the season to give the Raiders (4-3) their first winning record this late in the season since 2011.

    Michael Crabtree had 102 yards receiving and another touchdown, and Taiwan Jones got his first career score on a tackle-breaking 59-yard catch-and-run that exposed a New York defense that had been outstanding the first six games.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick left with a left hand injury on the opening drive for the Jets (4-3), who have lost two straight games. Former starter Geno Smith threw for 265 yards and two TD passes in his first action since losing the job in training camp after getting punched in the locker room by teammate IK Enemkpali.

    Smith then left in the closing minute on a hard hit by Ray-Ray Armstrong. Fitzpatrick returned despite the injury and threw two passes before Smith returned.
