Taiwan Jones finds a home in Raiders backfield

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) Oakland running back Taiwan Jones is in a good place these days, both from a mental standpoint and his role in the Raiders offense. A fourth-round draft pick in 2011, Jones has finally reached a comfort level few thought he'd get to after being slowed by injuries earlier in his career and a failed two-year experiment playing defensive back at the behest of former...

WATCH: Oakland Raiders RB Taiwan Jones Makes New York Jets Defense Look Silly On 59-Yard Touchdown

Oakland Raiders running back Taiwan Jones has not done much for the Raiders this season. Prior to Sunday's game against the Jets he had barely contributed 100 yards of total offense and no scores. It's not that he isn't capable. He just hasn't been called on to do much. So maybe--just maybe--the Jets defense was not ready for him.After he made them all look stupid after he caught...

Three bold predictions for the Raiders vs. Jets game

Last weekend the Oakland Raiders defeated the San Diego Chargers in convincing fashion and for that reason I really do not mind that they were unable to complete two of the three bold predictions from last weekend. I believed those would be key to getting a win, but a win without them is just as sweet. Going into last week, I had a season record of 4-11 and fell to 4-14, but hey...

The Oakland Raiders fired on all cylinders to beat the San Diego Chargers 37-29 in Week 7. A balanced attack and another 100-yard game from Amari Cooper paved the way; despite the eight-point margin, this explosive contest was not a close one by any estimation.
