Two more successful passes from Carr opened up a 21-6 half-time lead, with Michael Crabtree and Holmes crossing into the endzone as the Raiders looked in cruise control.
Taiwan Jones crossed in the third quarter to extend that advantage to 22 points, but Geno Smith's four-yard pass was caught by Eric Decker shortly after as New York threw themselves the slimmest of lifelines.
Field goals from Sebastian Janikowski effectively sealed the win for Oakland, with Kellen Davis - and Smith again the provider - touching down in the final quarter for a consolation on an otherwise disappointing night.
