Rushing Offense/Defense:

Led by RB Chris Ivory’s 10-carry, 102-yard performance, the Jets offense produced 212 yards on the ground. It is the 10th 200-yard rushing performance for the club under Coach Ryan as the team improved their record to 9-1 in 200-yard performances.

After finishing third in the league in rush defense, and first in opponents’ rushing average in 2013, the Jets started the 2014 season by holding OAK to 25 yards rushing on 15 carries (1.7 average). The 25 rushing yards were the lowest allowed under Coach Ryan and fewest allowed by a Jets team since yielding 25 yards on 14 carries (1.79 average) at home against HST (11/26/06).

The 187-yard rushing differential was the highest by the Jets in a game since the 2012 season when they outgained IND by 211 yards (252 to 41) at home (10/14/12).

Chris Johnson:

In his Jets debut, Johnson, recorded 13 carries for 68 yards (5.2 average) and had five catches for 23 yards and a touchdown. For his career, he eclipsed 10,000 yards from scrimmage (10.069) and 8,000 yards rushing (8,033). The touchdown was his first on opening weekend since he scored twice rushing in 2010, also at home against OAK (09/12/10).

Chris Ivory:

On the Jets first play of their fourth drive of the fourth quarter, Ivory broke off a 71-yard touchdown run, the longest rush of his career. The one-play touchdown possession was the team’s longest one-play touchdown drive since QB Mark Sanchez hit WR Braylon Edwards for an 80-yard touchdown in 2009 AFC Championship Game (01/24/10). It was the Jets longest rushing touchdown since 10/18/09, when RB Thomas Jones ran for a 71-yard score.

For the game, Ivory finished with 10 carries for 102 yards (10.2 average), his sixth-career 100-yard rushing game and fourth as a Jet. Ivory’s teams are a perfect 6-0 when he rushes for at least 100 yards.

The run surpasses Ivory’s previous long of 69 yards, set at BUF (11/17/13) and his longest scoring run of 56 yards, set at ATL (11/11/12).

Geno Smith:

Second-year QB Geno Smith improved to 2-0 in opening day games in his NFL career and completed 23-of-28 of his pass attempts for 221 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Smith also added 38 yards on 10 carries, picking up key first downs twice on the ground on third-and-eight or longer.

Smith’s 82.1% completion rate was the highest of his career and the highest since Chad Pennington completed 82.1% on 32-of-39 passing at BUF (09/30/07). It also marked just the third time in club history that a Jets quarterback completed more than 82% of his passes on at least 25 attempts.

Additionally, Smith finished the game with 11 consecutive completions, the longest such streak of his career, including a perfect eight-for-eight in the second half. Smith matched Neil O’Donnell at SEA (08/31/97) and Chad Pennington vs. TEN (12/01/03) for the most second half completions without an incompletion in team history.

Three-and-Outs:

The Jets defense forced six three-and-outs on 12 OAK possessions, including a three-and-out to start the game and consecutive three-and-outs on the first two second-half possessions.

Dawan Landry:

S Dawan Landry logged the first Jets sack of the season when he dropped Carr for a loss of 11 yards in the third quarter. Landry, in his second season with the Jets, recorded his second-consecutive opening week big play after recording an interception in last season’s victory over Tampa Bay (9/8/14).

Jason Babin:

Babin, in his first game as a Jet, continued his streak of sacks on opening weekend with his seven-yard sack of Carr on third-and-seven, setting up a fourth-and-14 with 4:31 to go in the fourth quarter, forcing an OAK punt. Babin now has sacks in his last five season openers.

Nick Folk:

After connecting on a pair of 40+ yarders, K Nick Folk is now a perfect 12-for-12 on opening weekend FG attempts in his Jets career. Entering the game, Folk’s 95.0% FG made percentage is tied for the fifth best in the league.
