Raiders shake off penalties, climb to No. 2 in power rankings

  • RAIDER RULE NO. 2: See Raider Rule No. 1.
  • Through 11 games, the Raiders lead the league in penalties (105) and penalty yardage (867), which is a relatively new development for second-year Raiders coach Jack Del Rio as his Jacksonville teams were some of the least penalized in the league at the time.
  • Raiders shake off penalties, climb to No. 2 in power rankings
  • You can hear former Raiders linebacker Matt Millen cackling as he recalls the signs, real or fictional, adorning Oakland’s locker room, the ones that read: RAIDER RULE NO. 1: Cheating is encouraged.
  • Then again, the Raiders did set an NFL record with 23 penalties for a franchise-record 200 yards in an overtime road victory Oct 30 against Tampa Bay.

Following their win against Carolina, the Raiders reached No. 2 in ESPN’s Power Rankings for the first time since the final 2002 regular-season poll.

Jets place Geno Smith on IR

Jets place #GenoSmith on IR

  • Jones spent most of last season on the Jets’ practice squad and was promoted to the active roster later in the year without seeing any action.
  • Quarterback Geno Smith will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL against the Ravens last Sunday, which left little reason for him to remain on the team’s active roster.
  • Smith’s contract expires at the end of this season, so there’s a pretty good chance that he won’t be back on the roster at any point in the future.
  • Smith was one of four quarterbacks on the roster, so the team didn’t need to add to Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg as backups for Ryan Fitzpatrick .
  • The Jets went ahead and removed Smith from it on Wednesday by placing him on injured reserve.

  • I’m waiting for the first accusation that somehow it is cheating when the Patriots put him on the field
  • The Patriots have been running great this year and this will make them even better.

The Patriots were able to survive four games without their most important offensive piece, and now they could be getting another back midway through the season.
