42nd regular-season meeting.
Overall, the Raiders lead the series with a 22-17-2 record.
Crabtree had six catches for 80 yards and three touchdowns against the Jets.
The Raiders return mostly the same team that won twelve games a season ago. The duo gave defenses fits previous year, combining for over 2,000 yards and thirteen touchdowns. If they do, then the Jets have more problems than they bargained for. If executed effectively, the West Coast scheme will be a slow and methodical attack, one that will keep the Raiders offense on the sidelines for extended periods of time.
Defensively, the Jets are going to have their hands full. Carr yelled “Seattle” (get it?) and connected with Crabtree in the back-left corner of the end zone for a touchdown. He kicked four field goals, including two from 52 yards to become the first player in National Football League history with at least two 50-yard field goals in his debut.
Still, Gang Green has some players who can make life hard for the Raiders, should the Silver and Black foolishly take this team lightly. “He’s probably one of the best rushers in football”. They’re aggressive in their scheme. Still, they had only five penalties in the season opener last week at Tennessee.
The Jets saw new pass catcher Jermaine Kearse put up a pair of touchdowns in the loss, but that was the only positive the team could possibly take. “Coach even called us out”, Wilkerson said. It’s about playing the game. “That’s what we’re about”. Here is this game’s tv schedule, the betting odds, the weather forecast, the injury report and recent history between these two AFC teams. The Raiders will also start former Giant Marshall Newhouse at right tackle, replacing former Jet Austin Howard. Newhouse is listed as the No. 1 left tackle after being co-No. He played solidly against Tennessee while Alexander relinquished a sack.
“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. He was upset that the Jets were getting beat so badly that Lynch could dance.
The roster was drastically reshaped during the offseason as several veterans with big contracts were released. There were no holes for Matt Forte or Bilal Powell to get through. The Jets’ duo ran for a woeful 38 yards on 13 carries against the Buffalo Bills. Last week McCown went 26-of-39 (???) for 187 yards and two interceptions. Oakland (2015 with Cleveland).
NY played conservatively in the season opener and lost 21-12. His passer rating is 113.8. He threw for 333 yards and four TDs in the last meeting.
Beast of the West: Marshawn Lynch returned after one year of retirement to join his hometown Raiders.
Finding a good pocket as RT Brandon Shell angled off Pro Bowl defender Khalil Mack, McCown liked a 1-on-1 matchup with Kearse up the home sideline. This might get ugly.
