John Hall's 53-yard field goal -- his longest of the season -- launched the Jets into the playoffs.
It doesn't look like it. The Raiders haven't played well the last part of the season.
First the defense struggled, now the offense is struggling; the kicking game has had troubles. Oakland isn't really hitting on all cylinders in any phase of the game (offense, defense or special teams). The defense has improved some, but when the Raiders had to stop the Jets at the end of Sunday's game, they couldn't get it done.
Oakland is definitely not on a roll going into the playoffs.
ESPN.com's Vinny Cerrato was director of player personnel for the Redskins and 49ers.
Martin fumbled for just the second time this season. The game cost him the NFL rushing title, which went to Kansas City's Priest Holmes. ... Tyrone Wheatley, a forgotten man in Oakland's offense in recent weeks, scored on a 3-yard run in the second quarter. ... Janikowski stood on the Raiders' sideline in a coat and hat. He told a television reporter during the game that he thought he was healthy enough to play.
