Another masterful performance by Derek Carr and other Raiders superlatives

For the third time this season, Derek Carr put in a banner day for the Raiders. Facing one of the toughest defenses in the NFL, Carr had his way. The Raiders put up 34 points on the Jets and built an early lead, and ultimately winning by two touchdowns.

Carr's final line was 23 for 36 (62%) for 333 yards and 4 touchdowns. That matches his career high for touchdown passes in a game - a number he reached just one time before in a tough loss to the Chargers early last season.

He has now thrown for over 300 yards three times this season after reaching that number just once as a rookie last season.

All of this and he didn't turn the ball over once which gave him a stellar passer rating of 130.9. It's the second game in a row he has surpassed a 130 passer rating, and just the third time in his career. He had a passer rating of 140.2 last season in a week 14 win over the 49ers.

Here are a few other superlatives from Sunday's win

Oakland has scored at least 30 points in a game three times in a season for the first time since 2010.

The Raiders offense boasted a 300-yard passer (Derek Carr, 333), a 100-yard rusher (Latavius Murray, 113) and a 100-yard receiver (Crabtree, 102) in the same game for the second time this season.

Murray Eclipses 100-Yard Mark

RB Latavius Murray eclipsed the 100-yard mark for the second time this season (Sept. 27 at Cle.), finishing with 20 carries for 113 yards (5.7 avg.).

Murray's average of 5.7 yards per rush is the highest of his career (min. five attempts).

Murray's first carry of the game was a 26-yard scamper to the right side, giving him a new career high for rushing yards in a season (previous high: 424 in 2014).

After going without a single 100-yard performance in 2014, Crabtree now has two this season after his 102-yard performance against the Jets. He had a 111-yard outing week two against the Ravens.

Crabtree's 36-yard touchdown catch was his third of the season. He had totaled four touchdowns all last season.

Marcel Reece, Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree, and Andre Holmes each have three receiving touchdowns. It's the first time since 2002 (Charlie Garner, Jerry Porter and Jerry Rice), three Raiders have at least three receiving touchdowns through the team's first seven games.

RB Taiwan Jones scored his first career touchdown on a 59-yard catch-and-run, putting the Raiders ahead 28-6 in the third quarter. The 59-yard reception was also the longest offensive gain of his career, rushing or receiving (previous long: 52-yard reception).

Rookie WR Amari Cooper recorded his fifth five-reception game, giving him 38 receptions on the season. He passes Marcus Allen (1982) for the most five-catch games (five) by a Raiders rookie.

Charles Woodson recorded his 65th career interception, tying him with Ken Riley for fifth place on the all-time list.

Woodson's interception moves him into sole possession of second place for the most interceptions since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. He trails only Raiders assistant defensive backs coach Rod Woodson (71).

Woodson's five INTs on the season are tied for his most as a Raider with his rookie campaign in 1998.

Woodson's five INTs this year are tied for the most in the NFL.

Khalil Mack added his fourth sack of the season, equaling his entire total for his rookie season.

K Sebastian Janikowski attempted two field goals of 50-or-more yards in the game, connecting on his second attempt from 52 yards out to mark his 50th career field goal from 50-or-more yards.
