It is getting tricky in the fourth quarter in Oakland

The Jets just tied the game at 10-10 with some trick plays.

On third-and-2, the Jets used the "Wildcat" formation with receiver Brad Smith taking a direct snap and running for the first down.

On the next play, Jets quarterback Brett Favre handed the ball off to running back Thomas Jones who then gave the ball to Smith who zipped into the red zone. Smith was assisted by a nice block by Favre on Oakland defensive end Kalimba Edwards.

Jones scored a few plays later to tie the game.

The Raiders took a 13-10 lead with 2:56 to go in the game after linebacker Jon Alston ran 21 yards after taking a snap on a fake punt by Oakland. It setup an Oakland field goal.
