EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Chris Ivory burst through a few tackle attempts for a 71-yard touchdown run midway through the fourth quarter, and the New York Jets’ defense clamped down on Oakland rookie quarterback Derek Carr in a 19-14 victory Sunday.

With still a one-score game, Ivory rushed up the middle and appeared stopped, but slipped a few would-be tacklers on his way to the end zone. A 2-point conversion failed, but the Jets held on to win their season opener.

Geno Smith threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Chris Johnson as the Jets sent the Raiders to their 14th straight loss in the Eastern time zone.

1010 WINS’ Kevin Rincon caught up with fans outside of MetLife Stadium on Sunday.

“Better than a loss, right?” one fan said.

Others were more optimistic.

“Came out firing, it was good. They’re gonna win the Super Bowl,” another fan exclaimed.
