Oakland Raiders running back Taiwan Jones might still be running if it weren’t for the end zone.

Jones scored a 59-yard touchdown against the New York Jets on Sunday, breaking multiple tackles and using his speed to blow by defenders en route to the score.

With a 21–6 in the third quarter, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr found Jones in the backfield, then the running back did the rest. Jones first runs by linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin, then dodges a tackle from Marcus Gilchrist before speeding past the rest of the defense for the score.

An extra point gave the Raiders a 28–6 lead over the Jets after the touchdown.
