EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Geno Smith threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score as the New York Jets set a season high for points and stopped a three-game skid with a 37-27 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Chris Ivory had a touchdown run, Nick Folk kicked three field goals and Antonio Allen blocked a punt and returned it for a score to help the Jets (6-7) in the AFC playoff hunt. Smith ended a miserable stretch that included getting benched last week by throwing his first touchdown toss since Week 7.

The Jets also prevented the first four-game losing streak under coach Rex Ryan.

Matt McGloin threw two touchdown passes and fullback Marcel Reece, starting because Oakland was down three running backs, had a 63-yard TD run for the Raiders (4-9).

Oakland has lost three straight overall, and 13 consecutive in the Eastern time zone.
