OAKLAND -- The Raiders just ended the NFL's longest current touchdown drought.

A short pass from JaMarcus Russell to Javon Walker was Oakland's first touchdown in 140 offensive plays. It was the longest streak in the NFL.

Prior to the play, which gave Oakland a 10-3 lead over the Jets in the third quarter, Oakland's last touchdown came in the second quarter of the Raiders' week 4 loss to San Diego. The Raiders had a bye in Week 5 and they lost 34-3 in New Orleans last week.
