JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Oakland Raiders have figured out how to win on the East Coast. The Jacksonville Jaguars have no idea how to fix their offensive problems.Latavius Murrays return from turf toe provided a spark for Oaklands running game, and quarterback Derek Carr was efficient and effective in a 33-16 victory against the listless Jaguars on Sunday.Now, the Raiders (5-2) get to enjoy their week in the Sunshine State before playing at Tampa Bay next week. Oakland improved to 4-0 on the road (2-0 on the East Coast) and has the franchises best start to a season since 2001.Im a Florida boy and its nice to be back in Florida weather for a little while, Raiders defensive end Khalil Mack said. Now we need to go out and get another victory next week.The Raiders will train in Bradenton next week before facing the Buccaneers.The Jaguars (2-4), meanwhile, have a short week before playing at Tennessee. Although players suggested a quick turnaround could be gd after an embarrassing effort Sunday, the reality is Jacksonville needs extra time to correct whats quickly becoming the leagues worst offense.Blake Bortles was off again Sunday, throwing for 246 yards and two interceptions. He had a garbage-time touchdown to Julius Thomas in which the veteran tight end made an impressive catch over Malcolm Smiths back on a ball that easily could have been intercepted.Bortles has been mostly ineffective all season. He has nine TD passes and 11 turnovers, and his inaccuracy, mechanics and decisions have become issues in his third season.Im obviously not playing gd, Bortles said. I couldnt tell you. I wish I knew; I would fix it. Its just a continual thing and we will hopefully find a way to turn it around and solve some problems.Benching Bortles seems like a long shot, especially on a short week, but its clear coach Gus Bradley is running out of excuses for his starter.Im not going to sit here and protect every throw he makes, but you are right, there are throws wed like to be better, and wed like to have more accuracy, Bradley said. When we are in a situation where we arent doing what we want offensive, those things get more magnified.Bortles and Carr were two of the top four quarterbacks selected in the 2014 NFL draft.Bortles is regressing while Carr is taking his game to the next level.Carr completed 23 of 37 passes for 200 yards, with a touchdown, no sacks and no turnovers. His best throw was a rollout TD toss to Michael Crabtree late in the second quarter that put Oakland up 20-6.Derek has done a tremendous job this year of going to another level as a player, coach Jack Del Rio said. It was an example of a young man really growing in terms of his mastery of situational ftball, which you need to be gd at. It was a great indication of him executing at the highest level.Here are some other takeaways from Oaklands first win in three trips to Jacksonville:JAGUARS MELTDOWN: Between penalties, fights and ejections, this was a meltdown for the Jaguars . They finished with 13 penalties for 122 yards and had two players ejected.Receiver Marqise Lee was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and then defensive tackle Malik Jackson was penalized twice on the same play. He was ejected four plays later following an exchange with an official. Jackson ran to the locker rm, seemingly eager to get off the field early.Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey and Raiders receiver Johnny Holton were ejected for fighting in the final minutes of the lopsided matchup.As a professional in the NFL, thats not what its supposed to lk like by any means, veteran linebacker Paul Posluszny said. So thats what makes you mad. Were in the NFL. We need to have high standards for how we conduct ourselves at all times. Ive never seen anything like that before. And thats unacceptable on a lot of different levels.MURRAY MATTERS: Murray missed the last two games and clearly brought something extra with his return. He finished with 59 yards on 18 carries.Any back wants the ball in his hands, and Im one of them, Murray said. When we run the ball, we do gd things.DEL RIOS RETURN: Del Rio heard bs throughout his return to Jacksonville. Most of them werent directed at him. Del Rio won in his first game in Jacksonville since getting fired by the Jaguars with five games remaining in the 2011 season.It is gd to come back here and get a gd effort in this stadium, said Del Rio, who was given the game ball by Carr in the locker rm.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL kiestore.com/Eagles-Chuck-Bednarik-Jersey/" target="_blank">Chuck Bednarik Womens Jersey .

McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English ftball. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- When Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler tk snaps in practice Wednesday, he saw a handful of unfamiliar jersey numbers on the offensive linemen blocking for him.This is nothing unusual for the Bears in a preseason marred by injuries, but losing Pro Bowl guard Kyle Long for any amount of time is an obstacle.Long remains out with a shoulder injury and coach John Fox isnt giving out details about its severity.When he plays, hes going to play, Cutler said. Until then, weve got a gd crew out there. Hell get back out there whenever hes ready to get back out there.Hes still in the building. Hes still in meetings, still at practice, so his voice can be heard.Cutler said it will be difficult for Long missing time.Just the way he carries himself through this transition that hes in now is going to speak volumes about him, Cutler said. Hes going to do it the right way.An offensive line that included center Cornelius Edison, regular center Ted Larsen at right guard and Garry Williams at right tackle is not quite what the Bears had in mind when camp started, but thats who is blocking for Cutler heading into Saturdays home preseason game with Kansas City.We had a lot of guys coming in and out, Cutler said. I think through training camp we saw a lot of different faces coming in and out of the huddleSo I think the comfort level kind of grew a lot with a lot of guys. So itll be a test. Its preseason. Its a gd time to do these things.Williams, who signed Aug. 4, played in 41 games for Carolina from 2009-2014. Edison was a practice squad player who moved up the depth chart when the Bears lost starting center Hroniss Grasu to a torn ACLL in early August.ddddddddddddLarsen had to move from center to Longs spot while right tackle Bobby Massie sat out Wednesday with the flu, which caused five other Bears to miss work.Cutler said theres no doubt Longs absence creates a gap.Youre missing that big guy that can lock down the three-technique (defensive tackle), Cutler said. Whenever hes in there, you know that side is pretty much going to be void. You dont really have to worry about that. Youre going to have rm to step up.Hes been a three-time Pro Bowler. Hes a heck of player for gd reason. Well miss him this week, and hopefully well get him back sn.Playing rkie Cody Whitehair at starting left guard seemed a risk heading into training camp. Instead, with all the injuries on the Bears line, the second-round draft pick so far seems steady.Whitehair has also been comfortable lining up at center with backups in preseason games.We plugged him in as a starter fairly early, Fox said. Weve had two live ftball games, not regular season but preseason. Hes played multiple positions.His ftball IQ is very high. How fast hes adapted to the pro game has been pretty impressive.Game notes Starting running back Jeremy Langford returned to practice Wednesday after sitting out since Thursdays preseason loss in New England because of a ft injury. ... Defensive end Jonathan Bullard missed his third straight practice for what Fox called personal reasons, but is expected back at practice Thursday.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
