New York Jets vs. Oakland Raiders Preview and Prediction

Last time Josh McCown faced the Raiders was past year for the Browns. "I was out on the field on kickoff return [at that moment], and I saw that happen, and it just was infuriating". He lost a fumble after a strip-sack deep in minus-territory and the Raiders turned that takeaway into a TD, but the Jets were down 22 points prior to the switch in possession. Oakland leads the all-time series 7-5, though Washington has won the past two meetings, both in Oakland. Oakland must start the game by outclassing a much weaker opponent.

This story will be updated with quotes and post-game material from the Raiders locker room at the Oakland Coliseum. They held All-Pro DeMarco Murray to 42 yards on 12 carries and Marcus Mariota to 256 yards passing.

"Skittles has powered Marshawn since he was a kid so it's a great way to kinda give back to the community and let everyone know that Marshawn's here and that he appreciates being here", said Raider booster Khaled Taqieddin.

"This guy, it looks really good coming back and it's just why we were stressing this week we have to get everybody to the ball", Jets defensive coordinator Kacy Rogers said. As the Patriots' outside receiver I see Cooks playing a similar role to the one Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs had Monday night in which he torched the Saints for 93 yards and two scores on seven catches. In the contest on Sunday not only did he have 9 tackles, you had to love that touchdown saving pass break up!

For the New York Jets to emerge victorious, their defense will need to dominate.

But the advantage grew a bit larger two minutes into the second quarter when Crabtree picked up his second touchdown of the afternoon, a 26-yard lob from Carr. "Too many plays in the second half".

Vikings promote practice squad QB amid concerns about Sam Bradford's knee
Last weekend, Haden was taken advantage of by Coleman on more than one occasion with the receiver's flashy speed. However, given Bradford's past injury history - on the left knee specifically, too - it's hard not to worry.

The New York Jets season began in predictably disappointing fashion on Sunday, as the team was outplayed handily by the Buffalo Bills en route to a 21-12 loss.

LEAKY LINE: The Jets' defensive line is expected to be a strength this season. Quarterback Derek Carr was efficient with two touchdown passes and the Raiders defense gave up yards, but stiffened in the red zone. They were just as embarrassing on the other side of the ball. If they do, then the Jets have more problems than they bargained for. He'd bring me over and we'd always talk football.

It's a handsome day in Oakland, California for Beast Mode to make his return home.

Why? Well, for starters, the Jets never play well in Oakland, even when Gang Green is fielding a good team. I'm sorry, but I just can't picture the Raider defense being abused on Sunday by Josh McCown.

Gareon Conley is officially off the injury report.

What it means: The Raiders are 2-0 for the first time since 2002, when they started out 4-0 en route to a Super Bowl appearance. In looking back on the game you find Raider defender (line backer) Tyrell Adams out of position on a few plays.
