Halftime news and notes from Oakland

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

OAKLAND - Halftime thoughts from Oakland:

The Raiders are killing themselves with penalties. They have been penalized eight times for 45 yards. One penalty nullified a touchdown pass from JaMarcus Russell to Zach Miller and another allowed the Jets to keep possession after a punting situation.

Even though he has been benched in favor of Hiram Eugene, Oakland safety Michael Huff is playing extensively.

The Raiders are blitzing often.

Oakland running back Darren McFadden still looks like he is slowed by a turf toe injury he suffered in Week 2 in Kansas City. He has 18 yards on four carries.

New York quarterback Brett Favre has completed 14 of 19 passes but for just 97 yards.

Former Raiders' quarterbacks George Blanda, Ken Stabler and Jim Plunkett participated in a halftime ceremony to honor Raiders' hall of famer Gene Upshaw who died after a short bout with cancer in August.
